The old monastery of Agios Stefanos in the region of Meteora in Central Greece.
Like the other monasteries in Meteora is built on the top of a monolith rock.
These huge monoliths are a very rare geological phenomenon.
During the period between 11th and 14th century, on the top of these monoliths, the Greek monks built 24 monasteries, in order to be protected from the bandits and pirates.
Until the 20th century, monks, pilgrims and supplies reached the monasteries only by means of rope-ladders or by a big basket coming up and down by a winch mechanism manipulated by the monks on top.
Nowadays, only six of these monasteries remain renovated in the region, while the rest are abandoned and ruined.

The iconostasis of the church of the old ‘NOVA PAVLICA’ monastery (XIII century), near the town of Raska in south-central Serbia.
The warm evening light passing through the small windows created an imposing devotional atmosphere.
The wooden iconostasis, with the magnificent fine carvings, is a unique piece of art of high quality.
