1298 – Karakalou: the interior

 Early morning October 4th 2011: the katholicon

 The interior of the guesthouse

The same hallway, in the opposite direction

With the rules of the monastery above it: “concerning hospitality

Athos map in the hallway

Watercolour art from Karakalou: Xizos Michail (?) 1996/7

This last picture shows you something about the things that are to come: this large bell does not belong to Karakalou and originates from the nearby kelli Timiou Stavrou. I wanted to visit this kellion for a long time, because I have seen it in 1986, as reported in older posts “An adventure on the Holy Mountain – part 1 2 and 3” (see 187, 188 and 192 + 702, also see the categories).

And this adventure continues, because we will take a closer look at Timiou Stavrou next time (and I had a special reason to go back there)!
