All of monasteries that are located at Metéora in Greece, and most are perched on high cliffs and accessible only by treacherous staircases cut into the rock formations. They were created to serve monks and nuns following the teachings of the Greek Orthodox Church. Much of the architecture of these buildings is Athonite in origin.

The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron
– This is the largest of the monasteries located at Metéora. It was erected in the mid-14th century AD and was the subject of restoration and embellishment projects in 1483 and 1552. The building serves as the main museum for tourists. The Katholikon (main church), consecrated in honour of the Transfiguration of Jesus was erected in the middle of 14th c. and 1387/88 and decorated in 1483 and 1552.

Το Μεγάλο Μετέωρο
Περί τα τέλη του 11ου και τις αρχές του 12ου αιώνα συγκροτείται η πρώτη υποτυπώδης μικρή ασκητική πολιτεία, η Σκήτη της Δούπιανης ή των Σταγών με λατρευτικό κέντρο τον ναό της Θεοτόκου το "Κυριακό" της Σκήτης. Κατά το 1340 ο όσιος Αθανάσιος ο Μετεωρίτης συγκροτεί το πρώτο οργανωμένο μοναστικό κοινόβιο στον μεγαλύτερο βράχο του πέτρινου δάσους, τον Μέγα Πλατύλιθο ή Μεγάλο Μετέωρο. Ανεβείτε τη λαξεμένη στο Βράχο σκάλα και θαυμάστε την αγιορείτικη αρχιτεκτονική του καθολικού και τις υπέροχες αγιογραφίες που χρονολογούνται από το 1483. Ο επισκέπτης της Μονής μπορεί να χαρεί: τον Πύργο (1520) όπου δεσπόζει ο Εξώστης με το δίχτυ, το Κελάρι (σημερινό Μουσείο λαογραφίας με παλαιά σκεύη και εργαλεία), το Οστεοφυλάκιο, τον Ναό της Μεταμορφώσεως του Σωτήρος (1388), με τοιχογραφίες εξαιρετικής βυζαντινής τέχνης του 1483 στο ιερό (μακεδονική σχολή) και του 1552 στον κυρίως ναό και τον νάρθηκα (κρητικής τεχνοτροπίας που ανήκουν στον μαθητή του Θεοφάνη του Κρητός, Τζώρτζη), Στην Μονή φυλάσσονται χειρόγραφοι κώδικες μεγάλης καλλιτεχνικής αξίας, χρυσόβουλα, πατριαρχικά σιγίλλια και άλλα έγγραφα, πολύτιμα ιστορικά ντοκουμέντα, σπάνια παλαίτυπα (15ου-19ου αι.) φορητές μεταβυζαντινές εικόνες (14ου και 15ου αι.) παλαιά περίτεχνα χειροτεχνήματα ξυλόγλυπτα, χρυσοκέντητα, αργυρά κ.λ.π.

Hi Danos,
gorgeous photography of great depth. The frame is exceptional, since it shows to the architecture of the place and great amount to us of details of high quality. The gray tonalities add to the atmosphere more uniformity. The way in serpent form that takes to the monastery is certainly fantastic.

Salut, Jordi

Hello Danos,
I prefer by far this one from the one I critiqued before. The light must have been hard to manage because there seems to be a wide range of light (sky is light and lots of shadow zones n the monastery and trees). You did a good job with that. I think it could be lightened a bit though. Not that it lacks any detail, just that I find it too dark (for my taste)

Again, a good note.

Iassou Danos,
I ve been there many times in the 60's as I was living in Parga, at the time... I love the place... Good view on the Μεγάλο Μετέωρο with strong atmosphere given by the dramatic sky and well balanced contrast. Sharp details too.

Well done. TFS

Hi Danos,
Beautiful pov on this village and a lovely soft light to give an very interesting result for your well seen shot.

Hello Danos,
Thank you for sharing this wonderful view of the Monastary also the most informative notes!
great pov with perfect sharpness, rich colouration and details to enjoy
well done and much appreciated

Hi Danos,
These Monasteries are really impressive, for its construction hung on these immense rocks, looking for the sky, and with the stairs that they allow to accede to them.
Good photo, compound well and with a light and a few tones in the cloudy day that they give an a bit mysterious and cold aspect to this place, and a magnificent sky.
Great work.
Best regards,

Hello Danos,
beautiful shot enhanced by the beautifl soft light and the soft/natural colours. Compo works very well with the monastery at the top of the hill and with the road to acces leading the eye through the compo!
You managed to create a beautiful atmosphere with this!
Thanks for sharing

γειάσου Danos,
Wonderful compo, much effective and dynamic. The wall acts as a great lead-in to the old buildings perched on the rocks and the pine tree balances the FG very nicely. As on the other one, you took wise profit of that light that would be a nightmare to many of us.
Σεβασμοί, José.

Γεια σου Δάνο

Μια από τις καλύτερες καταγραφές των Μεγάλων Μετεώρων!!



Hi Danos,
I always see this place from a far distance, this is a good shoot to show the architectures in more detail, good pov to show the way to reach the peak, thanks for sharing WS photos too.

Hi Danos.

Nice, nice view. It's great how the path in the wall takes us into the Monastery...well seen!

My compliments!

The site is even more impressive with this restless sky.
Beautiful moved closer enough point of view and which shows well the fusion between the rock and the architecture of the monastery.

Hi Danos,
Picturesque architecture image with attractive details. The POV is very spectacular, romantic and beautiful place, indeed, I was here in 1992. Very well done! Have a nice day

Hello Danos,
This view is just like from a fairy tale. Very beautiful with soft colors and great sky. Your frame is excellent,
Best regards,

Yasu Danos,
The image, the composition, the use of light, the colors are absolutely wonderful. Well shot and well postprocessed or not, it lacks nothing to make it better. Beautiful photo.
Se xereto.

Olá Danos, another very good one of this fascinating place. It's impressive the way they managed to built in such unacessible places. Your composition here is really good - I love the way you connected the wall in foreground with the zig-zag one climbing the hill in the background. It makes a fast reading of the image and a wonderful interplay bettween FG and BG. I agree that as the previous one, this is a bit dark due to the dull weather. Manamo did a fine ws. Thanks for the excellent complementar images.
Best regards,

Ελαφρώς σκοτεινή φωτογραφία, αλλά δείχνει πολύ ωραία την μεγαλόπρεπη κατασκευή του μοναστηριού και τον ογκώδη βράχο στον οποίο στερεώνεται. Υπέροχος ο ουρανός!
Καλή η σημερινή επιλογή σου.

Hello Danos,
One can't help but admire this monastery. The construction must be difficult. The cloudy day enhances the feature and provides good contrast. Boy would I like to visit this place someday! Greetings! Danilo

Hi Denos. The beauty of this shot emanates from a well judged POV. Especially the zig-zag composition with judicious blending of colour and contrast. Regards.

Very beautiful colors & perspective. It does give the monastery feel to this place. I once visited this place in 1985. I have two scanned images posted but the colors were hard to manage due to the age of the negatives. Happy New Year to you.

Cher ami Danos,
Vous aussi vous me faites voyager depuis mon ordinateur. Je découvre des lieux magnifiques chargés d'histoire. Des vues qui donnent envie de partir et de voir ces richesses sur place !
Tout n'est pas toujours possible, aussi je me contente d'admirer et d'apprécier comme il se doit votre magnifique album.

Hi Danos,
It must have been an huge architectural achievement to build into this rock. The way you captured the weaving road towards the castle is very pleasant visually. Well captured and composed with good image quality. Well done! tfs

Kalimera Dano, I like the way you used the stairs to lead the eye to this formidable monastery. The way it's draped over the hill under the dramatic sky is beautifully captured. And I again like the a bit toned down colours and the smooth textures here. Good work!

Superb architecture catch !
Here you really played with the lines, and exposure and colors are very powerful.
Nice job,

Hello Danos,
I like to follow the criss-crossing walkway to the top with my eyes!
It is always interesting to see how they built monasteries in places with difficult access, maybe for defence purposes in the old times...
Good point of view and a fine composition, good light and fine details!
Pablo -

When I came to Meteora, without knowing that it even existed, in 1972, I just stared, could not believe my eyes. And we did not dare to even look for a possibility to get up there! Your great photo makes me curious, I want to get up there!! Maybe next time!

A good vantage point over the steep hills with the monasteries, under a dramatic sky adding more atmosphere to the scene. Thanks for the complementary photos.

Hi Danos,

The monasteries are impressive especially where they have been built. It must be very hard to use the stairs to get to them. The point of view is giving depth to the picture. It is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the monasteries. have a nice day.

Με εκτίμηση, Βασίλης.

Hello Danos
The only opportunity that I provided to see this place has failed.
Broke my leg two days before travel.
So I looked at pictures of this place and still regret to plaster on his leg and on crutches I visited Meteora.
Your composition is wonderful.
All praise and desire to spend a nice weekend.

very beautiful monastery over the rocs and great paint

πολύ κοντινό το πλάνο από το Μεγάλο Μετέωρο,με την ομορφιά να είναι προσωποποιημένη φερ΄ ειπείν στο μοναδικό αυτό δημιούργημα της φύσης και στη συνέχεια της αδάμαστης ανθρώπινης δύναμης.


That monastery of Meteora is a mystic place Danos,
Excellent sharpness and presentation, your note gives us excellent information about that monument

Δάνο, εκανα διάλλειμα στην δουλειά και είπα "πάω με τον Δάνο στην Μύκονο" αλλά Μύκονο δεν βρήκα ετσι εφτασα εδω σε αυτήν την μαγευτική φωτογραφία και το μόνο πού μπορώ να σου είναι ότι νιώθω δέος...ολα τα άλλα είναι περιττά!!!
να είσαι πάντα καλά και να παραμένεις πάντα πρώτος με παρόμοιες φωτογραφίες!!
καληνύχτα σου
