Sprawling monastery boasting the easiest access of any monastery in Meteora. Access is via a wooden bridge - no climbing stone stairs carved into the rock. This does, however, mean more crowds, so plan your visit accordingly (ie: not when six coach buses are in...More

I have difficulty with climbing, so we decided to limit ourselves to this nunnery since it is very accessible. It was beautiful, the view fantastic, and the nuns tend the garden beautifully.

The mountainous rock formations of Meteora are breathtaking in and of themselves, but seeing so many crowned by a monastery the architecture of which rivals that of the great European cathedrals is simply stunning. The practice of constructing these fabulous complexes is, of course, consistent...More

The views are stunning and to be inside such history is quite amazing. One of the smallest monasteries. Deserve a visit. It was nice inside especially the chapel with a huge chandelier in the center.
