1968 – The miraculous vine of St. Simeon at Chilandariou by Cuville in 1918

This autochrome (1918) by Fernando Cuville shows a small part the Katholikon of Chilandariou on the left, the famous vine of St. Simeon is growing in the direction of the well. In the background the clock and the bell tower.  The vine is famous because the dried raisins have wonderous results because they help women with fertility problems.Although a huge fiere destroyed many parts of Chilandariou in 2004 this part of the monastery is not that much changed. The vine has properly grown, on this picture made in 2015 and the well looks pretty much the same. The clock has moved a window to the right.
