Meteora is by far the most popular destination when someone visits the city of Thessaloniki and we can not disagree about it!IThis type of rock formation and weathering process has happened in many other places locally and throughout the world, but what makes Meteora's appearance special is the uniformity of the sedimentary rock constituents deposited over millions of years leaving few signs of vertical layering, and the localised abrupt vertical weathering,Meteora was added to the Unesco World Heritage list in 1988,because of the outstanding and of this world architecture and this unique type of beauty of the complex in addition to the religious and artsy significance. This unique breathtaking view had,have and will always have peoples breath taken,enter the Monasteries by taking a few steps,visit the inside of it and take look how beautiful and well organised it is!Enjoy the scenery up and close from the Rocks! Enjoy your meal at the traditional village of Kalabaka which is located exactly down from the Monasteries,where you can actually capture some beautiful images of the Monasteries and rocks even closer and personal! Do not hesitate as well to buy if you want something from the area,it's up to you!
