St. Barbara's Monastery, Greece

$0.00Price
St. Barbara's (also called Rousanou) is in Meteora, a wonderful strange place in Greece where for centuries monks and hermits lived in caves hidden high on sandstone pillars. There are now six main monasteries there, most from the 15th and 16th centuries. Some of the monks famously travel by old cable cars between the buildings. Most of my time there it was rainy and misty, and I had some camera difficulties, but it was fascinating and I hope to return.
