A fascinating journey to the "Garden of the Virgin". The traveller experienses the ancient rhythms of the nature and environment of Mount Athos beginning on its rocky sea-shore and finishing on the peak itself.
While the pattern of monastic life remains almost as it ever has been for a thousand years, the seasons succeed one another, each imparting a distinct colour and character to the landscape of the Holy Mountain, revealing the harmony that exists between the monks and the environment, between the natural and the supernatural.
