Delete last paragraph
I visited Meteora for three days just over a year ago and plan to completely revamp this entry from publications I purchased, including posting my pictures. Having said that, the last paragraph now is out of place and if no objection, I plan to delete it. GeoTraveller 01:52, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
I visited Rousanou/St. Barbara and St. Stephen. They were both easy to get to though St. Stephen had a drop off from it's (railed) "moat" bridge that horrified some fellow travelers. Student7 02:38, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
I have failed this GA.
- POV in lead “built on spectactular...” The pop culture reference to Bond frankly seems like undue weight.
- Overview:Unsourced. Can these be added? Also POV “immense rocks”. Some of the later sentences are very short and need to be merged.
- The overview is basically the article so it is strange to be listed in this way. There is very little to the article apart from list (a list of monstaries”). I think more can be said about the individual monasteries. It is also mostly unsourced
- References need to be formatted properly and with full information.
- Generally needs more information. Since it is a UNESCO heritage site, there should be a lot written about it. Also, the UNESCO listing is usally a big deal, so the process of it being selected should also be mentioned.
- Should there be a mention of the tourism at the site?
It turns out that Cunard (the cruise line) are reproducing the start of this article (and several others) in their daily printed newsletter without citing wiki. One guy in cust svc even claims that this article may have been cribbed from them. Anyone want to help refute this? thx —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:01, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Anyone want to put in the fact that Meteora was one of the inspirations for it? Its page on Bulbapedia claims it to be true, so if anyone wants to do a bit of research to see if you could back it up, it should probably be added here.

An excerpt reads " ...which geologists maintain were made by the waters of a prehistoric sea. Greek historian Herodotus wrote in the 5th century BC that local people believed the plain of Thessaly had once been a sea..." Actually, nearly every place on earth has been underwater at one time or another including most (if not all) of the Himalayas. This needs rewording by someone with a passing familiarity with geology and/or Greece. It sounds naive. My guess is the somewhat out of context paraphrasing was meant to indicate that the land was underwater in recent geologic times, after a "recent" ice age maybe? Can't be too recent - the current shoreline would apply. Student7 (talk) 18:06, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Meteora (Greek monasteries) → Meteora — This page was moved to make way for a redirect to a less notable article (Meteora (album)) without discussion. Propose this should be moved back to Meteora. Tomayres (talk) 18:53, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Who is builder of Meteora's monasteries
Dear, historicans, I can say that this text is apsolutely wrong. When you say "In 1344, Athanasios Koinovitis from Mount Athos brought a group of followers to Metéora.", do you think that he is builder of Meteora?!?! Builder can be only leader of some country or state (in this case, John Uroš with his father Simeon Uroš, who promote building of this monastery complex, Athanasios Koinovitis just have been ordered to assemblage group of monks from Atos. One monk to have money to make big complex of monasteries in this time?!?! This is Middle Age! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Srdjantodorov93 (talk • contribs) 00:39, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
