Meteora, Greece (by Thanassis Fournarakos)

"To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, To gain all while you give, To roam the roads of lands remote: To travel is to live." -Hans Christian Andersen

Meteora Monastery is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, second only to Mount Athos

Agia Triada Monastery is probably the most dramatically positioned monastery of the complex, as it is perched on the top of a delicate pinnacle, accessible only by 140 steep steps.

The monastic community of Meteora that rests atop awe-inspiring peaks that ascend to the sky hovering over the town of Kalambaka. Believed to have been inhabited by hermits as early as the 11th century, the rock formations were chosen as the location of a series of 21 gravity-defying Byzantine monasteries.
