You can see the Monestry of Varlaam (In Greece, Meteora) above the clouds. It represents the wish of the monks, that they wanted to be as close to God as possible. This wish and their faith enable them to build this building in 1541 with simple tools without machines to the top of high rocks.

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. " Matthew 17:20
