If I remember well, women can see it from the ferry going around the peninsula, so maybe we could write something about that.

  • In the section on "respect", it is written that non-Orthodox should abstain from receiving the non-consecrated bread at the end of the service as well as inquire before venerating some relics. Typically, these activities are open and welcome to non-Orthodox (non-consecrated bread is not Communion; venerating icons and relics is not a salvific act). If, for some reason, the rules in certain monasteries are different, maybe someone could clarify or else I might eventually edit this.


"No meat is allowed on Mount Athos" I believe this is not exact. Yes meat is not served in the monasteries but I do not remember any prohibiting instructions against it. I also recall having a meat dish in a guesthouse in Karyes. Svobodat (talk) 16:10, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
