St. Nikolaos Monastery (Meteora monastic complex)

St. Nikolaos Monastery (Meteora monastic complex)

Founded in the 1300s, this monastery boasts a beautiful main church that has been decorated in a stunning tradition. The main church is dedicated to St. Nikolaos and was built in 1500. The artwork you can admire in the interior of the church has been credited to Theophanes from Crete.
He is the founder of an entire school of art. If you wander to the upper floors of the monastery, make it a point to admire the chapel of St. Anthony. You’ll see a number of 14thC frescos and murals that are iconic in Byzantine art. Ask to visit the ossuary which is an important part of the monastery’s attractions and is especially interesting in terms of tradition. There are other chapels that are also worth a visit.
