1394 – The Romanian skiti of Prodromou in the 19th century

prodromou

Early shot of Prodromou, probably 1890. The skite will get the shape of a monastery, as you can see below,  but here not all the buildings and walls are finished.

On this photo a large building is added to the skiti, probably with cells for the monks.

    Thanks for the older photos of Prodromou!
    I stayed there for a couple nights in summer 1988, found it and Fr. Petronius (d. 2011) fascinating and inspiring.
