Apocalyptic route refers to water element of Aristotle’s Philosophy.
The route includes a visit to the unique monastery of Mount Athos, the Monastery of Zygos (Fragokastro), which is located right on the border of Mount Athos. It is an ancient Athonite monastery, which was founded in the middle of the 10th century and was destroyed shortly before 1198. Through a beautiful walk we will encounter the Athonite architecture and learn important historical facts, in a place that is only one meter away from the borders of Mount Athos. The Zygou Monastery – even if it is inactive today – is the only Athonian monastery in which the representatives of the female sex are allowed to enter. Outside the fence, you can see the column with the UNESCO logo, which marks the designation of the Athonian peninsula as a World Heritage Site.
Our route continues with a visit to the interesting museum of Necropolis and free time in the small town of Ierissos. Finally, we will end up at a local brewery with a strong symbolic character, in a specially designed area. There we will not only enjoy a mini-interactive seminar on beer production, beer tasting accompanied by fine local cheese, but we will draw information about the 7 seals of the Apocalypse.
*Price includes transfer (Ierissos,N. Roda,Ouranoupoli), escort, the entrance to Monastery of Zygos- Nekropolis and a beer tasting combined with excellent quality local cheese .
