1608 – surprizing Athos: a ‘new’ aqueduct near Iviron!

Every now and then I discover “new” objects on the Holy Mountain. My good friend Jan Paul ten Bruggencate (83)visited Athos last May and he sent me this picture of this beautiful aqueduct, that can be found about one kilometer frond the Iviron monastery.

    Hello Wim,

    Do you happen to have the GPS coordinates of that bridge ?

    Jan Paul replied:
    Wat het aquaduct betreft, ligt dit ongeveer 800 á 1000 m. westelijk van Iviron. Op de kaart van Zwerger staat er een stippellijntje loodrecht op de kust het binnenland in.
    Sorry geen GPS gegevens dus!
