Meteora - Thessaly Greece

The Meteora mountain peaks in Thessaly, Greece.

The Meteora mountain peaks in Thessaly, Greece.

From the book JOURNEY IN GREECE by Antoine Bon, published 1949 by Kauffmann Publishers, Athens Greece. This book is apparently a reprint of a 1938 publication.

From the book:

"METEORA: Monastery of Hagia Triada, founded in 1438, is one of those monasteries built as early as the 14-th century on sandstone rocks, with vertical walls - and called Meteora - to be safe from brigands."
