Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 4 – Kalabaka⁩ and Meteora

March 8, 2018 at 06:56

After our party evening, we had a good nights rest and some coffee in the morning. After that, we hit the mountains behind Kalabaka to see the Meteora rocks and the monasteries up there. In the early 9th century monks started to stay in the caves there. It took another 500 years and they started to build the monasteries. The first woman who was ever allowed to enter one was Queen Marie of Romania in 1921. More information: Wikipedia
