No other words they're all beautiful with stunning scenery and views. This one has quiet a few steps up to the entrance from the roadside parking. It is shaded by trees though.

Founded in the 16th century, the easily-accessible Rousannou Monastery occupies a lower rock than the others of the Meteora. You can actually climb down from the view point above and if you ask your car to go down, then again climb down from the monastery....More

This is maybe my favourite monastery at Meteora. There are a lot of steps but under the shadow of beautiful old trees. Very charming place!
