1744 – arsanas Sografou

In 2013 we hiked from Sografou to the harbour/arsanas of the monastery. It is a 45 minutes walk, mainly over dirt road. Just before reaching the arsanas you can take a path, the last remnants of the original monopati.Arsanas Sografou Google maps2 DSCN2721 (Large)the spot where the monopati beginsDSCN2722 (Large)Soon after you’ll the first glimps of the arsanas, here you see a garden with a glasshouse, an old wind mill and a house.DSCN2723 (Large)And a little later the tower and the church show upDSCN2724 (Large)Old houses just before you reach the tower, still in use.DSCN2725 (Large)The tower with a staircase leading to a house with a bellDSCN2726 (Large)The house behind the tower: look at the round muller on the left, probably a part from the old wind millDSCN2727 (Large)The front side of the tower, with an old fashioned telephone pole on the left.
