FOUR BORING GREEK POSTCARDS OF THE METEORA MONASTERIES FROM KATERINA  Thanks Katerina!

The Meteora is a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, second in importance only to Mount Athos. The six monasteries are built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders that dominate the local area.

I have cycled around these monasteries, but not up to the top of them.
