In post 1201 I ended with a picture of the path from Stavronikita to Kaliagra. As I told in 1201, I wanted to visit the Kaliagra harbor and buildings, so I took a hike of 15 minutes.
The NE coastline of Athos, with Kaliagra and the mountain
Odd-shaped bush, modeled by the wind, overshadowing the path.
Unspoiled beach, littered with wood and slightly polluted, near Kaliagra. This is how beaches look if nobody looks after.
Kaliagra – a fine sandy beach, with an excavator on the right
I drew my own plan of the building (which is not 100% accurate). Kaliagra – view from the North, with the entrance to the boathouse in the tower (building A and B). Someone forgot the remove the scaffolds, after an attempt to renovate the building? Stairways to the living-quarters ? (building B and C, stairs G), with on the other/sea site the remnants of balconies. Kaliagra – the South site of the building (D, C and B)
Kaliagra – the sea site (with remnants of balconies, E)
Kaliagra – the tower or boathouse, building A This stone with a text above the door in the tower at the first stairs (F and H) gives us some more information. In english: The present arsanas……of the abbot…….Koutloumousiou….Second is third:and fourth: Indiktionos. (which means year).
