Meteora Monasteries, Greece, one of the 'top 10 most dangerous structures in the world' by

Meteora Monasteries, Greece []

Meteora literally means “hovering in the air" in Greek. The Meteora Monasteries are a cluster of medieval monasteries, and one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece. Located atop towering natural rock pillars, 24 monasteries were constructed during the 15th century despite incredible difficulties. Now there are six of them still in use. Until little under a hundred years ago, people could only reach the steep cliffs in a hanging basket or by climbing flimsy rope ladders. Today, they can be easily accessed through roads, steps and bridges.
