To end the blog about my visit to Grigoriou, here are some more pictures from the interior of Grigoriou, but first a colorfull detail of the church.
Guesthouse or archondariki
Athos map on the wall: although the print looks relatively new, you donÃ½ see any steam or motorboats, so it is hard to say when this map was made.
Hallway with monks cells, leading towards a door to a balcony, overlooking the sea (see the plan at 1164, from nr L along S and then to the sharp corner at the lower site of the plan).
Balcony with white wash
The balcony overlooking the sea, some of it restored with new parts.
Looking down …………….!
Grigoriou courtyard (R on the plan)
The doors to the first courtyard
The entrance to the monastery - a modern "christian" capital in marble
The boathouse of Grigoriou
The boat "Mikra Agia Anna"leaving for Dafni. Grigoriou seen from the NW corner.
