  • The male monastery of Vronta is just 460 m. a.s.l. but seems to be on top of a mountain for the view which opens all around, especially on the opposite Turkish coast. The fires of 2000 have unfortunately left deep wounds in the structure that conveys an image of decadence offset however by the presence of three monks, a small but strong community whose dedication is the continuation of life within these ancient walls (was founded in XV ^ century). We entertained with a young monk that detract from the lamps to light the candles in view of the mass, recalling the figure, now passed to better life, Father Theofilos, who has given so much to the monastery of Vronta. Was followed by a visit in the little shop inside the monastery, where the monks are helping with some income (the soaps are very fragrant). Upon leaving we were escorted to the door by a senior monk, who sat on a low wall-external-gazed towards the coast of nearby Asia minor like they did, but with very different concerns, his predecessors lived in past centuries. A moving experience, with mixed feelings of decadence and hope for the future.

  • Unfortunately, while we came up to the door of the monastery is not blessed with visits beyond established hours listed on the front door of the monastery. Outside the monastery, you made a great impression on the oldness. On the inside I have no point of view, all too.
