Next stop of our tour is Meteora, particularly well known for its geological formations.
24 giant rocks rise up perpendicularly from the ground in the western part of the plain of Thessalia, in Central Greece. The impressive rocks are composed of a mixture of sandstone and hard gravel which is called a conglomerate. They are representative of the art of Nature: the rocky forest of Greece. They are believed to have been formed 60 million years ago.
At the pinnacles of the rocks, which reach 550 meters, been monasteries were built by hermits and religious ascetics in the 9th century A.D. In the 12th century they had become a loose-knit community, which respect for the ideas of solitude.
