The Agia Triada (Greek: Αγία Τριάδα, "Holy Trinity") monastery was used in the final scenes of the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only.

The Meteora (Greek: Μετέωρα, "suspended rocks" or "suspended in the air") is one of the largest and most important complex of monasteries in Greece, second only to Mount Athos.
