After visiting Kaliagra I went back to Stavronikita, to pick up fellow pilgrim Peter and to continue our trip to Pantocratoros. But first some more pictures of Stavronikita.
At the entrance door: a badly damaged fresco of Ag. Georgiou and the dragon, with highly placed officials (the Byzantine emperor?) in a tower, offering two keys. An archangel on the right.
