Greek Orthodox monks built 20 monasteries atop rock pillars at Meteora (Thessaly - Central Greece) overlooking the Thessalian Plain, from the 10th to the 16th century, in order to get away from Byzantine politics and raiding Turks. The thing that makes Meteora so special is the monasteries on the top of the rock towers. This place is something like monasteries kingdom.
