What to see in Greece
The Meteora monasteries are located in the north of Greece, on the Thessaly plain, near to Kalambaka, in the Pinios river valley. The area has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988. These are constructions perched on the top of grey rocks, shaped by erosion and called Meteora. They are located at a height of 600 metres above sea level and have been inhabited since the 14th century.
