The Holy Mountain, Pt 8: Stavronikitas

Our last stop on the monastery tour was Stavronikitas (Victorious Cross). They have the smallest katholikon of any of the 20 monasteries, but -- of course -- it was beautiful and very old.

The top photo is our group just outside the monastery, stopping to look at their fish pond.

The second photo is taken from the grapevine-covered courtyard. Fr. Alexios and his son, Hristos, are looking out at the sea.
