Rock-climbing as a test of the human body, but also of faith in God. The Meteora is a rare geological phenomenon, a world-famous attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 20 monasteries were built on the Meteora rocks, but today only 6 are open to visitors; the Holy Monastery of St. Nicholas Anapausas, Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron, Holy Monastery of Varlaam, Holy Monastery of Rousanou, Monastery of the Holy Trinity and Holy Monastery of St. Stephen. Visit Kalambaka, which is the regional centre, and the picturesque Kastraki which is the starting point for climbers.
