Mount Athos

Mount Athos is associated with the monastic life, the Byzantine tradition and the greatness of nature. It is undoubtedly one of the most special parts of the planet not only due to the monks' commitment to ascetic life in 20 monasteries, but also to the unaltered image of all the elements combined that make what we call Mount Athos: the monasteries and their impressive architecture, the simple way of life and habits of the monks, the spiritual peace that is maintained 365 days and the nature, unaltered and rich. Mount Athos never ceased to be the most important beacon of Orthodoxy and a place blessed with the healthiest of all its natural goods: dense forests, olive groves, vineyards and thousands of species of herbs and flowers.

Today, Mount Athos, apart from having been declared a UNESCO's World Heritage Site, is also part of the NATURA 2000 network, the EU's most ambitious and major ecological program, which ensures the preservation of the natural environment of the Athonite peninsula by preventing and prohibiting any use of pesticides and conventional forms of agriculture. Protecting the environment, Mount Athos can offer 100% pure and organic products and raw materials, not only for the monks and the followers of the Christian tradition, but for the whole world.
