12/20.- St. Nicholas Anapausas, Meteora, Greece


This is St. Nicholas Anapafasa (Agios Nikolaos Anapafsas), one of the smaller monasteries here. It was closed the day I visited, which is not uncommon. Monastery hours seem to change frequently and on any given day, particularly off-season, one or two of the monasteries are likely to be closed. That said, quite honestly, after you've seen the first two or three the others don't look that different (unless you are a true afficionado of Byzantine monasteries!). Do try to visit on a day when Great Meteoron is open though, as that one does have more to see than the others.
