Let’s take a closer look at the Vatopedi monastery. On the plan below we start at nr 1, the main entrance. The numbers refer to the places where the pictures are taken.
Number 1: the main entrance
Nr 2: the kiosk or waiting pavilion (P), seen from the entrance
nr 3: the mural in the vaulted dome in the main entrance
nr 3: detail of the mural: the Father, Son and Holy Gost
nr 4: the guesthouse/archondariki and the chapel of the Holy Girdle (Agia Zoni). B1 on the plan all are fountains. We had a room in the attic:
nr 5: view from the guesthouse (the balcony near E k), north east direction.
nr 6: the chimneys of the guesthouse
nr 7: the katholicon (A) and the clocktower (A2), with a roofed well on the right and the chandlery (N) on the left
nr 8: a wing of cells
nr 9: the courtyard in front of the exo narthex of the katholicon. On the right the trapeza and on the left the phiale (B), with the bell- tower behind it (A-1).
