the monastery at the top of the mountains
meteora

Travelling to this unique North Greece location, Meteora rocks offers incredible photography moments. It’s the perfect background for landscape photography, unique scenery that you can not find anywhere else in Greece.

Actually, the big attraction of the place is located 10 km further on the road to Paleokarya: a beautifully restored stone bridge in front of a small waterfall on the river Portaikos
Palaiokarya’s Stone Bridge

The imposing and beautiful bridge of Paleokaria with its 2 artificial waterfalls has been standing there since the 16th century. It is a one-legged stone bridge of 26 meters in length. The waterfall behind the bridge is 12 meters high and the dropping water creates a beautiful image<br />
