    The cell of St. Nicholas Burazeri (Bourazeri) does still exist, I think. Maybe not exactly as you see it here. And it is not in Karies, but on the road from Karies to I.M Stavronikíta. See p.e. the Facebook of monk Gravilo, who lived there: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.138963249466818.25521.111591225537354#!/media/set/?set=a.138963249466818.25521.111591225537354&type=3

  2. Hello! I am about to start research about photography in Old Valamo monastery, and the photoarchive wich is now in New Valamo, Finland.

    I am interested to know more about the photographers of theese pictures. I have heard there was a darkroom in at least one of the monasteries. Please, also tell me if you know of any other sources on early photographers in orthodox monasteries.

    Yours, Katarina Koskivaara
