In this post I will share the remaining pictures I shot on September 4th. I hope that the building and its beautiful murals, icons and iconostasis will be preserved and that somebody will take the initiative to save it!
The church building has 3 floors, here a photo of the balcony
Blurry picture -sorry-, shot from the balcony
The triangle with an eye, symbol of God, on the ceiling
Leaving the church: the hallway on the first floor lies behind the doors
The hallway on the first floor, with an (empty) old wooden trunk
The rooms were deserted, but some furniture, beds and carpets were still there
I left the main building through the courtyard door
And I had a closer look at the kitchen/storage building
This part of the building is a deplorable state: floors were rotten and ceiling came falling down
An old basket and its contents
This ends the posts about one of last large uninhabited buildings of Athos. Lets hope that it stays intact. Maybe that publishing these pictures will contribute.
