1234 – Athos June 2011: Skiti Prof. Eliou and Pantocratoros

Mr Jan Paul ten Bruggencate started his latest visit to the Holy Mountain with a night in Skiti Profitou Eliou. This is an extraordinary achievement, because non-orthodox pilgrims are not allowed to sleep in this Skiti.

He told me that he used the help and influence of his German Athos friends, who have a special relationship with this Skiti.  006 Skiti Prof EliouSkiti Profitou Eliou
