  1. On my first visit to Great Lavra, I took a walk with a non-Orthodox German man who had visited more than a dozen times. He went to bring me to the isolated stone cottage where an old Greek man lived — a friend of his. That’s where these petroglyphs are — near his cottage. You missed the best one — in the back garden of the cottage is a wine-stomping press carved out of the stone. He explained that all these features were created by the primitive agrarian society that lived on that peninsula 3,000 years ago.
