The World Heritage–listed Meteora (meh-teh-o-rah) is an extraordinary place, and one of the most visited in all of Greece. The massive pinnacles of smooth rock are ancient and yet could be the setting for a futuristic science-fiction tale. The monasteries atop them add to the strange and beautiful landscape.
Mt Athos (Agion Oros)
If you’re lucky enough to be able to visit Mt Athos, do it – it’s an experience you won’t forget. For over a millennium, unbroken spiritual activity has survived on this isolated peninsula, in a semi-autonomous monastic republic following the Julian calendar. Athos has 20 working monasteries, and skites (monastic dependencies), plus kelli (ascetic hermitages).
