Comprising of sandstone and conglomerate, the caves at Meteora are thought to have been inhabited as early as 50,000 years ago.

Nowadays, Meteora is home to one of the most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries. As you explore, see all six of these monasteries, built on large naturally-formed pillars.
