The Metéora (Greek: Μετέωρα, "suspended rocks", "suspended in the air" or "in the heavens above" - etymologically similar to "Meteorite") is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, second only to Mount Athos.The six monasteries are built on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains, in central Greece. The nearest town is Kalambaka. The Metéora is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List

TIM927 a ver , que seguro que tú me sabes contestar,,,¿Por que los monaterios suelen estar en sitios tan altos? Y no me contestes que pa estar más cerca de dios, que dicen que está en todas partes, así que no puede ser por eso,,,debe de ser por las vistas,,desde luego,, uy, o a lo mejor es pa evitar que los fieles se vayan,,una vez que subieron tan alto,,ye más fácil conseguir que se queden?? Mira todo lo que me hiciste divagar en un momento,,me daba tiempo a subir a la cima jajaj,,,,el lugar es alucinante..
