The stairs to the large guest chambers of Vatopedi are maybe not that interesting to photograph but over the years photos are being made. After a long walk it is the last obstacle to overcome before you can lay down in your bed.
A look at the stairs in the direction of the main entrance of the monastery. This was the situation in 1930.In 1916 it looked like this.Could it be that photographer Fernand Cuville was standing on the stairs when making this autochrome picture in 1918? In the background, on the hill, the ruins of the Athonite Academy, Athonides .
