Dafni, The Port of Mount Athos

Dafni, The Port of Mount Athos

Dafni, the largest port of Mount Athos, is a small settlement. It is located on the south coast of the Athonite Peninsula between the Xeropotamou Monastery and the Monastery of Simonopetra. It is mainly used as a port and point of entry into the monastic state of Mount Athos, with daily routes from Ouranoupoli.

Based on our store, which is located in Dafni, the seaport of Mount Athos, we search , try and gather handicrafts of great quality and products which are mainly produced by the monks who live both in the cells and the monasteries of  Mount Athos. The monksʼ greatest concern is their spiritual duties. As a result , the Athonite products are produced without a haste and only in the monksʼ spare time. Thatʼs why they are available in limited quantities according to the season. The well kept knowledge of the past which is grafted by the Godʼs love and the human desire is the one and only recipe of all these goods we can present to you in our website. Having love and trust to the monastery products, we were led to search in many other orthodox monasteries not only throughout Greece, but throughout the whole world as well! Whatever worth presented we find , it will definitely be a part of our effort.

With love in Christ
