The monks in mount Athos monasteries produce the best wine i have ever tasted
pure and natural......forget about France...i am talking about the best wine man can make.....

....mount Athos....the best ever.....

The quantities they produce are very small though....they are mainly for their own use and not for commercial purposes.....

Churches/Monasteries of Greece

As we all know, most Greek Churches are in the Byzantine style.

The colour inside and out of these buildings so fascinates me. I've seen Catholic Churches for example, and none that I have were as colourful.

So let's share pics/comments when we see them.

Church of St. Lydia, in Asprovalta, Macedonia, Greece.

I thought this was stunning. Warm, and contrasting. I use to love just staring at these bible scenes in Church as a little boy.


Holy Metropolis of Thessaloniki

A correction: The church named as ''Agia Sofia'', is the metropolis of Thessaloniki, not the Agia Sofia church, which is located a few blocks away from there.

I see.


The church of Ressurection (Ekklisia Anastaseos) is located on a hill in Ermoupoli at the island of Syros.
From there, when the weather is good, you can see the islands of Tinos and Myconos.
