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.img_3683_edited-1
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.img_3684_edited-1-large
