One of the most magnificent experiences at Meteora, except from the area and monasteries is the stunning view of sunset on top of the rock pillars.
This late afternoon tour starts with a visit at one of the 6 monasteries of the area that is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We visit Agios Stefanos monastery that was built in the 16th century. This monastery was shelled by the Nazis during World War II who believed it was harboring insurgents and was abandoned until 1961, or Roussanou monastery, that was founded in the 16th century. (except for Mondays, where we visit a different monastery due to it being closed.)
Sunset tour begins with a visit to one of the 6 active monasteries of Meteora, Agios Stefanos or Holy Trinity. Then we visit the oldest standing monument of the area, the Byzantine church of Virgin Mary thats is located in the old town of Kalambaka. This church was built in the early Christian period with ancient marbles embedded on the walls, revaling the town’s long history of 27 centuries. We also visit the thousand years old hermitages of Bandovas, listen to the stories and legends and enjoy great views from the most panoramic spots.
As the sunset begins, we move high up on the rocks of Meteora, on a magical spot to enjoy the most captivating sunset views. Up there, sitting on the edges of cliffs you will feel the evening breeze blowing through these giant cliffs. Allow your senses to explore moment by moment the dimming of the light as the sun disk sinks behind the mountains. This will be a perfect way to end a beautiful day at Meteora with an awe-inspiring tour to be remembered forever!
