On a path from Karyes to Vatopedi you can find an old kellion with beautiful frescoâ€™s.
Our Greek friend Giannis from this site has more about this kellion in Greek. He visited the kellion at the beginning of this month and writes us:
Giannis continues: The monk Chrysostomos is 76 years old. He is in Agion Oros since 1952 and in the year 1974 he came to the cell Molyvokklisia. For many years he was in the choral of the Protaton. Today he teaches Byzantine music to monk Efrem from the cell Marouda.
Father Efrem and Chrysostomos
The kellion belongs to Chilandariou and was founded by Makarios and Dimitrios, who came from Janjevo of Kosovo, as an inscription above a door says in the Serbian language.

The name of the kellion is derived of the original roof that was made of led. The Russians renovated the buildings in 1801 and nowadys they have a red tile-roof.
