The monasteries of Meteora
« on: November 03, 2010, 12:21:08 AM »
There are six monasteries currently active at Meteora, Greece. In the Fourteenth Century, there were two dozen. Today, however, visitors still flock to see the undiminished beauty of the frescoes at the facilities, and the rugged natural surroundings.

A friend of mine, a Greek native, recently visited there and brought back an English guide book.  I think I would make a pilgrimage there first before I went to Athos.  Very beautiful.
