The Greek word Meteora which literally means “middle of the sky” and “in the heavens above” efficiently describes the region of Meteora in Thessaloniki which is the second largest city in Greece and the historical capital of Greek Macedonia. The astounding region of Meteora which is a UNESCO world heritage site is characterized by monolithic pillars, huge boulders and ascetic monasteries built into its huge rocks. The monasteries can be reached by long flights of steps built into the rocks and while the climb is arduous, the view into the interiors of these monasteries is spellbinding.
