2262 – a drone footage of three towers of Mount Athos

Video made by Monk T on 5th of March/May 2021

This footage is made by monk T and shows three towers of the Holy Mountain: the first one is Palaiopyrgos, the ruins of an old tower between the arsanas of Sografou and Konstamonitou, for more information read this post on our weblog: 2221. The second tower is the one of Karakallou on the East coast. also see post 2127. And the last tower is the Amalfi tower, near Morfonou beach, a remnant of an old Katholic monastery, that once stood on this spot (before 1054?).

For more infomation about the towers on Athos I can recommand this book: The Towers of Mount Athos from 2001 and this collecters item with woodprints from all towers.

    The Benedictine Monastery of Amalfion/Amalfinon, which always stayed loyal to the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople existed until about… august 1287!
    At https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalfinon_Monastery you can find some basic info, but also a link to the excellent article “Amalfion” by Fr. Aidan Keller at https://uploads-ssl.webflow.com/5fde388ca9e57d64905a6024/62ba9599497b63e73e228bab_Western%20Rite%20Monastery%20of%20Mount%20Athos.pdf
