Mount Athos - Pilgrimage to "Garden of Virgin Mary"

This guide was created by the writer and photographer Loukas Lilios, as a result of his forty visits to Mount Athos, amounting to two hundred days spent there in total. The second edition has been renewed and filled with more information and recent photographs for the reader to admire. It is dedicated to the athonite monks, the pilgrims, the wanderers and especially to women, as a way to overcome the fact that Athos is, to them, inaccessible. We hope you have a wonderful wandering adventure through the spiritual and physical paths of Mount Athos.

• Monasticism and monks
