Mount Athos

Orthodox spiritual centre since 1054, the "Holy Mountain", forbidden to women and children, and with an autonomous statute since Byzantine times, Mount Athos is also a recognised artistic site. The layout of these monasteries (about twenty of which are presently inhabited by 1,400 monks) exercised its influence as far afield as Russia, and its school of painting influenced the history of Orthodox art.
