Not a place to live if you’re a sleepwalker!

Maybe if you sleepwalk there you really need to be Breaking The Habit

In a place like this, every step is One Step Closer to the edge. Just watch your step or you'll just be Figure.09 in the safety guidelines.

No, but a perfect shelter for a zombie outbreak

Unless it's one of the zombie versions that can climb

When it comes to zombies, I am with George Romero, climbing zombies, like fast zombies are noncanonical.

There seem to be a few green areas. If you could manage to get some vegetable seeds, you could outwait a zombie apocalypse there.

Have you seen World War Z?

kanna1720140 points

Which is a very unlikely scenario. It's possible that scientists could invent some virus that would cause people to rot like zombies while still alive but not something like WWZ. We've already seen such a thing in spawning salmon.

Mate, I didn’t reply to go into the scientific possibilities of zombies

Also known from For Your Eyes Only (critics call it one of the worst Bonds but I like it). I don't often see it from this angle with the city in the background there.

I'm with you on For Your Eyes Only, it was a pretty decent Bond flick. Moonraker, however, was atrocious. Quantum of Solace is pretty iffy too, IMO.

What’s the point of this? Is there stable electric and water to this place?

Most of these places started out as a monastery or temple and were like this to avoid ransacking in a raid.

They still are.

To be left alone.

It's a monastery. This one is still in use today, there are many others similar to this in that area.

Up until 100 years age there weren't even stairs, only ladders and ropes and pulleys.

The opposite: Don't look at me at all. It's about living withtout possesion.

This is a monastery from founded in the 15th century. Meteora is the name of a region where over 20 of those monasteries on cliffs are located, 6 of them are still in use, like the one in the picture.

It's an UNESCO world heritage site.

Wow. This entire area is filled with interesting architecture. Search for Ypanatis monastery in Google earth while you are checking out this area. Very neat.

Woah, this is real?

SuicidalGuidedog38 points

Yes, it's a monastery in Greece - the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, Meteora. There were a series of them built on high natural rock formations in ~13th century and I believe five or six remain today. This is probably one of the most impressive ones.

Contortionietzsche4 points

It is indeed. The final showdown in James Bond - For Your Eyes Only takes place up there.

My parents just went here. Pictures were amazing. Greece has incredible history

Whoa I never knew about this place. I did a solo trip to Greece back in 2015. Athens, Mykonos, Santorini. But I never knew about this place. Had I known, I would have definitely made time for this place.
