The creation of these rare giant rocks has been occupied and stiil occupies many geological scientists of all nationalities. So far, however, no clear interpretation has been given. Historically, however, it is certain that no ancient historian has mentioned Meteora.
The history of the meteoric monasteries is very long. We find it even during the Ottoman domination, when the monks taught the Greek language and held the desire for freedom in the monasteries alive. Even today, there are documents from that time that certify and inform about the value of the Orthodox Faith and the history of our country. Byzantine research shows us that around the ninth century the first ascetics settled in Meteora. There, in caves, the famous prayer rings, prayed for the salvation of the people. In the 14th and 15th centuries, monasticism in Meteora began to flourish. The number of monasteries rose to 24. Their period of decline dates back to the 17th century, due to many external factors, such as conquerors.
Today, visitors have the opportunity to visit six monasteries, and discover this unusual lifestyle of the monks. More specifically, the monasteries are:
• Holy Monastery of Agia Triada
• Holy Monastery of Agios Nikolaos
• Holy Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Savior (Grand Meteor)
• Holy Monastery of St. Stephen
• Holy Monastery of Rousanos also known as Arsani
• Holy Monastery of Varlaam
In most monasteries, until now, restoration works are being carried out. The preservation of all the Holy Monasteries is a very difficult task. The location of the monasteries is right on the rocks, which makes preservation difficult. Nevertheless, the continuous restoration and care of the monasteries continues until today. The cost of all this work is borne by the government’s ministry of culture, the monastery’s own fund, and the European funds approved for the specific work. All the Meteora monasteries have now been characterized by UNESCO’s listed monuments of humanity, Whenever it applies to Mount Athos, it applies to the Meteora Monasteries. They are part of the World Cultural Heritage Monuments, and they belong not only to Greece but to the whole world.
