After arriving on the main road to Karyes soon the panorama of the the small capital appears. The camera point in South East direction. Behind the large building with the rusted roof lies the Protaton church and in the background on the right the monastery Iviron.
An overall view of the “city”, with the ugly roof still protecting the Protaton.

Signs near Andreou
Skiti Andreou – a new shining “bling-bling” tower is about the be finshed. Apparently there lives a monk who is fond of satelite television……….
Karyes – a newly renovated house a shop for farmers with agricultural machines
Look how different the same place is in wintertime!
Karyes – an empty main street
Karyes – main street with snow/January 2010
