A Monastery Hewn Into the Side of a Cliff in Meteora, Greece
The natural slits in the Meteora sandstone mountains provide ideal conditions to embed smaller monasteries. This one, called Demetrio, can be seen by hikers in the Northwest part of the region which reveals many wonders; geological as well as human. They have constructed a type of manual elevator that can be seen between the two buildings to bring up goods and their own people.
