Ossuary for monks, The Great Meteoron Monastery (a.k.a. Holy Monastery of Transfiguration of Jesus), Meteora, Greece.

“In 1344, Athanasios Koinovitis from Mount Athos brought a group of followers to Meteora. From 1356 to 1372, he founded the great Meteoron monastery on the Broad Rock, which was perfect for the monks; they were safe from political upheaval and had complete control of the entry to the monastery. The only means of reaching it was by climbing a long ladder, which was drawn up whenever the monks felt threatened” (Wikipedia).

Meteora is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List under criteria I, II, IV, V and VII.
