The rocks of Meteora are conglomerates: a mixture of smaller limestone pebbles cemented together. Although the rock looks smooth from far away, you will notice it is not a smooth rock when you are standing close.

The rocks were deposited here when the area south of Meteora was a lake and shallow sea.

The rockshapes of Meteora are quite peculiar but not unique in the world.

A similar shape of rock you find in the pelgrim site of Montserat, near Barcelona (Spain).
