The plan of Skiti Prodromou, from Google Earth.
After dinner I took the opportunity to walk around the skiti. Here the square in front of the main entrance, seen from the wall at spot B.
Building activities (C) near a long wall and the drive that leads to the skiti
The sign that leads you the cave of Athanasius (A)
The south wall of the skiti, leading to the garden and the graveyard
The garden (D) with tomatoes and an irrigation system
The chapel in the graveyard (E)
The graveyard with a fresh grave of monk Petroniu Tanase, born 23 May 1916, burried here on 9 February 2011, 94 years old
Look here for pictures of his burrial.
A yellow flower (crocus?) grows on the soil of the graveyard
A little further down the path that starts at the cemetary: chopped wood for the winter
Mount Athos casting a shadow over the eastern Aegeic sea
Next time I will show you pictures from the cave of Athanasius and my visit to the monk who lives on the cliffs at the most Southern spot of Athos, Akrathos.
