Before we headed to Poros to meet Carolyn, we stopped off at Meteora. Built in the 14th century, there were 24 different monasteries perched upon the mountaintops. The photos really do not capture the beauty and make tangible the incredible genius to be able to build on such difficult terrain. Only 6 of the 24 monasteries remain, the rest have been left in ruins.
