The Monks of Mount Athos

blogvd

Amongst the picturesque cliffs of Mount Athos, Greece, lives a community of monks who have been on this sacred piece of land for centuries. Isolated and hard to reach, the mountain is one of the most important places in the Christian Orthodox world. 

The monks first arrived on the island in the ninth century, and their way of life has essentially remained the same. Most of their time is spent praying, cultivating the land and creating handmade products to sell. Come along and get lost in their tranquil way of life.
