Climbers of the Holy Rocks: Meteora offers more than 50 rocky towers

Climbers of the holy rocks - Meteora, Trikala

Here’s a place for hard core climbers. If I was forty years younger (in my twenties), I would love to climb in this area.

Photographer’s Note:

“Apart from the huge cultural, religious and natural interest of Meteora, it is also one of the best regions in Greece for climbing. More than 50 rocky towers are waiting for those who like this sport. The history of climbing in this place dates back from the ancient times, when the ihnabitants of ancient Aeginio found shelter here, in order to avoid attacks from bandits.”
