Mount Athos

Mount Athos (Agio Oros) is a unique monastic community, comprising 20 majestic
monasteries.

Apart from the monasteries, there are also 12 hermitages, monastic communities housed in huts on land ceded by the holy monasteries to small groups of monks.

The huts are actually buildings smaller than ordinary monastery cells with an integrated
church, but the monks don't possess any land. The hermitages are are located in places that are hard to access.

The capital of Mount Athos is Karyes. Here you will find the Church of Protato (10th century) with the renowned icon Axion Esti as well as the frescos of Panselinos.

Only men are allowed at Mount Athos. As for foreign visitors, they have to obtain a special permission.

Virtute tibique ad sit. Cu nam dolorum honestatis, ei accusamus disputationi sit, ferri feugiat in vis. Cum soleat posidonium et, mazim evertitur comprehensam ea eam. Nam no noster semper concludaturque, prompta omittam sapientem ne nec, nullam aliquam temporibus his ne. Sit cu facete prompta, prompta euismod ius ei. Fastidii torquatos prodesset vis ei.
