    The Docheiariou crane has ruined oh so many photos of mine the last few years. I have been wondering why they still keep it standing as it is currently not in use. From closer inspection I noticed that it is not a mobile crane, but a build-in one, and probably the biggest in Athos. to be removed it needs to be taken apart, and obviously by skilled personel and not by the monks. I don’t see that happening soon unless Docheiariou enters a new phase of restoration works.
