Impressive location of the Monastery. Views, decoration, icons, manuscripts and stairs all together make it a fascinating place to relax, to observe and to imagine. In general, Meteora and its monasteries have to be visited.

no sleeveless shirts, no pants and scarf on head for women
Only loosely enforced.
Closes at 4 pm

a place with history, with very nice views over the hole region, and first of all to the Varlaam Monastery...More
