  • Kind of like poputi and the stunning object. Will definitely recommend to climb to the top of the Tower-see real beauty. Above you can see the entire coast, new Athos monastery seems beneath you. And don't forget with a holy water container (on top is the source). Pet peeve is a lack of information about the object (what it was when it was made, what, than it is notable), so I recommend an advance look at the Internet of sites. Be sure to polazejte through the ruins to see the icon, which you do not know. If you heavily Ascend/descend-can cut part way and go straight down the slope, the main thing with this go very carefully, because there are stones that under you will go down.

  • To parking lots have arrived by car, paying for parking and buying a ticket, began climbing the Hill. Min. 25-30 spent on recovery. Following admired the beauties of new Athos. Climbing, drank holy water. In the castle there is a functioning Church. The spectacle is impressive. Very nice watch with a height of 350 m down. I advise you to visit this attraction.

  • Don't get fooled by advertisements and do not climb on the car go better on foot! rose leisurely hours and a half, and the machine goes to the cashier, but there's still 40 minutes on foot! Insanely beautiful panorama! very impressive architecture! Upstairs is the source and the temple! We really liked it. Down longer. ...

  • The old fortres on the top of the hill. The main tower is illuminated during the night, so it is hard to miss. Breathtaki mg views, especially during cloudy days, when you see the clouds are passing through the top of the hill.
  • The place is not for the weak of mind and body. To reach the fortress will have to sweat climbing up the winding road, which turns into a altitude of paving blocks. But all the works are more than rewarded. View from the ancient Roman observation tower of delights-all new Athos as in the picture in the tourist Guidebook. In the Centre of the fortress is preserved the chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

  • AMAZING PLACE! Climb here is difficult, but it is worth it! Another was built in or before 736 by the Byzantines with the purpose of the defense of the city from the Arabs.
