St. Varlaam/All Saints Monastery (Meteora monastic complex)

Founded in the early 1500s, this monastery is one of the most adorned in Meteora. Built by a local artist called Frangos Catelanos, he painted the murals himself. Admire the minute details in the religious scenes and notice the excellent craftsmanship of the era. Explore the chapel which is also beautifully adorned with hand-painted murals. There’s a museum in the rectory which is worth a tour. Testament to the monastery’s artistic heritage, it was a center for illuminated manuscripts and gold embroidery.
