In this post we proudly present yet another unique footage, shot by monk T on May 5th 2021 during the Corona pandemic, when no one was allowed to enter the Holy Mountain. This video shows you the winery of Mylopotamos, owned by Lavra monastery, where the late father Epifanios, monk, winemaker en cook, prepared his delicious and mostly vegetarian Athos meals. Read this post to learn more about the wines and more about our 2009 visit to this place.
A litlle further is the arsanas/harbor of Filotheou monastery and the chapel of the Panaghia Glykophiloúsas, which we wrote about in post 1892 after a visit in 2015.
