Meteora

 

an architectural complex in Thessaly, Greece, consisting of 24 monasteries and sketes situated on cliffs.

The principal monasteries, which most likely arose in the 12th century, were built primarily during the 14th to 18th centuries. The monasteries, whose architecture and frescoes resemble those of Mount Athos, include Great Meteoron (1387–88), Ayios Nikolaos (c. 1388), Ayia Triada (1438), and Barlaam (1517).
