Photographer's Note

Another shot of cliff top monasteries taken in the late summer of 1984. Taken from a slightly different POV showing more of the vertical cliffs. I like this one as it shows the bridge on the left side. The post processing work on the scanned image comes out better than the previous one.

Meteora is a complex of six (used to be more) monasteries established as early as the 11th century by hermit monks on cliff tops & caves. It is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

This image shows the monastery of Agious Stephanos or Saint Stephen and is inhabited by nuns - the only one for nuns among the six. The one in the middle distance is the monastery of the Holy Trinity (yet to be verified).
