2 January 2014. All Around the Orthosphere… Rousanou Convent of St Barbara in the Meteora

00 Rousanou Monastery. 27.10.13


The Rousanou Convent of St Barbara is one of the Meteora complex of monasteries in Greece. When these gals “left the world”, they LEFT the world. Originally, it was a male monastery, but it became a women’s house later on. Until the 17th century, the only way to get provisions was to haul them up on ropes. Today, the entire complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
