From the Author:

Having the rare opportunity of making a pilgrimage to Mount Athos with a group of friends I set out to capture some of the place's atmosphere through photography.
Many books have been written about Mount Athos. It is not my ambition to duplicate this information.
Words may be inadequate to describe the beauty, grandeur, tranquility and humility of Mount Athos. Therefore I will limit my comments to a minimum and rather use  images than words to convey the experience and feeling of this holy piece of land.
We have covered a lot of distance and visited many monasteries. However I do not want this book to be a travel guide so I have structured the book by topic rather than by place. Only several most distinct places got their own chapters at the end of the book.
Please browse through the photos and delve into the magic atmosphere of the sacred place.
