This is the smallest monastery in Meteora. As a result of its small rock surface area, this monastery is built atop several floors which is quite interesting. There were very few people here which made for a most pleasant visit. I even met some monks...More

It's not the biggest or highest, but there is something very "Black Narcissus" about the bell tower and the view - very atmospheric, and with some amazing frescos. Definitely worth a visit, away from the crowds.

Great views of natural formations.All monasteries have small churches because of limited space.All are very nice and have rest rooms and can be approached by car.But you will have to climb many steps be aware.All monasteries charge some money for entrance.

We visited three monasteries- Great Meteora, Holy Trinity and Agios Nikolas. The latter was our favorite. It had a certain charm and was easy to picture monks living there. Holy Trinity we visited because of the James Bond movie, but there wasn't much to it....More

Like most of the monasteries in the Meteora there's some climbing to do before even getting to the final series of steps leading to the entry. A small outside elevator can take someone from here to the monastery Be aware that the inside of the...More
