Mount Athos is the third, eastern and more magical peninsula of Halkidiki, which totally belongs to the church community. It is the only place in Greece that is completely devoted to the worship and prayer of God.
That’s why it is called in Greek Holy Mountain. Mount Athos is home to 20 monasteries. The natural location of the peninsula is admirable.
