Travelling is the highest religion!
A trip to Meteora offers the unique experience of nature’s grandeur in conjunction with history, architecture and man’s everlasting desire to connect with the Divine. From the early Christian times, the Meteora vertical cliffs were regarded as the perfect place to achieve absolute isolation, to discover peace and harmony and, thus, to support man’s eternal struggle for spiritual elevation.
Meteora is a truly inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations, but one must also be prepared to expect that this trip is much more than merely visiting an exquisite landscape. It is a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. Meteora has become a preservation ark for the 2000-year-old Christian Orthodox creed.
Visit the Roussanos female monastery and the Varlaam Monastery, Meteora’s second largest monastery. Take in the breathtaking scenery. Later, you’ll have the chance to visit the icons factory. Optional lunch in a local restaurant before returning to Corfu.
