In the prefecture of Trikala and at a small distance from the town of Kalambaka, you will find the site of Meteora, a beautiful formation of high rocks reaching for the sky and a variety of monasteries built right on the top of them. Most of the monasteries were built during the 14th century and until today they portrait a unique way of life.
Meteora is a site recognized by UNESCO as a National Heritage monument.
On the way to Meteora we stop at the tomb of Thermopylae which reminds us of the bravery and courage of one of the most acknowledged military figures in World history; Leonidas, the King of Sparta. With his 300 brave Spartans they fought until death against the Persian army of King Xerxes to retain their invaluable freedom.
