Until the 1920s, the only way up to the monasteries was by rope ladders and baskets. They were built on the most inaccessible summits of the majestic Meteora geological formation to survive invasions across the Thessaly Plain below. Now pathways and bridges will take you to all six. The Agia Triada, or Holy Trinity, monastery may look familiar – it was used in the James Bond film « For Your Eyes Only ». Modest dress is required for visits. Check opening times and tariffs for each monastery.
