358 – Skiti Agiou Annis

In 1986 I walked from Lavra and to Skiti Annis:


The monk was very hospitable and he allowed me to take pictures in his church.


Here are some images of the interiour:


The unique icon of Ag. Anna, bearing her daugther Maria: Kyriakon Ag. Annis

And some more images of fresco’s and icons:



When you sit in front of the church in the afternoon it is totaly quiet. No sounds are heard, except for the singing of birds and monks. But, the quiet scene was disturbed by a boat passing by. The spoken words whitch came out of the loudspeakers could easily be heard on the Holy Mountain. It was annoying: it brougth us back to the “real” world …………..
