1089 – Dionysiou (day 2 -9)

In my last blogs I discribed our fabulous hike through the Aeropotamos.IMG_3483 Apostoloi

After arriving at Dionysiou, we saw this small cell called Apostoloi, at the other side of the mountain, opposite the monastery (also shown in the panoramic picture in blog 1088). IMG_3480 Dionysiou entrance The heavy doors guard the entrance to monastery, with a fresco of Archangels, The Holy Virgin, Jezus and St. John above.
