The official Instagram account, with more than 357 million followers worldwide, posted on Sunday a photo depicting Meteora, thus advertising our country in the best way.
The impressive photo from the cluster of rocks, which rise outside Kalambaka, near the first hills of Pindos and Hassia, has gathered hundreds of thousands of “likes”, from the very first minutes it was published, while countless comments are spoken. for the beauty of the magical natural landscape of Greece.
It is worth noting that the monasteries of Meteora, which are built on the tops of some of the rocks, are today the second most important monastic complex in Greece, after Mount Athos. Of the thirty that have existed historically, only six are in operation today, which, since 1988, are included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
“Hello from Kalambaka. We dream of this small village located at the base of Meteora, a rock formation in central Greece. “Meteora (which translates as” floating in the air “) is known for the complex of remote monasteries, built high on these natural pillars,” the caption of the photo reads on the official Instagram account.
