1360 – Xirapotamou in 1744

Afbeelding 3

This is the monastery of Xiropotamou drawn by Barski or Barsky in 1744.  Very detailed and as we compare it with the recent foto’s you see how little things have changed. The tower on the left is still there but in ruins. The harbour (arsanas) on the right looks pretty much the same although it could be that nothing now is original anymore. But in a way time stood still.

Even the rocky part right from the tower starting at the beach you see on the Barski drawing. As the slope right from the boathouse.
