New on 500px : Meteora, Greece by enroc by enroc

In Meteora—”rocks in the air”—sandstone spires rise from the plain of Thessaly like tall lumps of clay on a potter’s wheel. Seeing the area as a religious retreat, monasteries sprung up here, beginning in 1336. At one time there were 24; today, 13 remain and six are open to the public. The area was added to the World Heritage List in 1988.
