Meteora is a group of huge dark-colored rocks rising just outside Kalambaka, next to the first mounds of Pindos and Chasia. The monasteries of Meteora, built on the tops of some of the rocks, are the second most important group of monasteries in Greece today, following Mount Athos. Out of the thirty monasteries which have existed in total, only six officiate today and, since 1988, have been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO. The monasteries of Meteora are included in this list, because they are a unique, harmonic matching of byzantine architecture and natural beauty. The buildings of the monasteries look like a series of rocks, like a natural ending. Moreover, they are an invaluable artistic treasure. In addition, the presence of so many monasteries in such a limited space, as well as the orthodox intellectual life and ascesis have caused worldwide admiration. Finally, the monasteries are cultural institutions, which – as is widely known – are not confined in any country.
The creation of the geological landscape in Meteora, although has been the subject of study for both Greek and foreign geologists, cannot be clearly explained. What is interesting to note is that neither in the Greek Mythology and Ancient Greece in general, nor in any foreign historical document has there been any reference to the particular place
