Visit Thermopylae & Meteora
From the early Christian times, the Meteora vertical cliffs were regarded as the perfect place to achieve absolute isolation, to discover peace and harmony and, thus, to support man’s eternal struggle for spiritual elevation.
The gigantic rocks of Meteora are perched above the town of Kalambaka, at a maximum height of 400 m (1200 ft). The most interesting summits are decorated with historical monasteries, included in the World Heritage List of Unesco
Thermopylae is world-famous for the battle that took place there between the Spartans and the invading Persian forces. For three days they held a narrow route between hills and the sea against Xerxes. A traitor named Ephialtes of Trachis showed the path to the invaders. The Legendary Spartans denied to surrender and they fought till the last one. A tragedy, showing the spirit and the mentality of Greeks.
