This FoMA map of the Athonite Peninsula situates Karyes, Daphni, and the major monasteries, sketes, and geographical locations named in FoMA's A Pilgrim's Guide to Mount Athos. It is intended for general orientation, not as a guide for travellers.

A Map for Pilgrims

What map should a pilgrim use? The only truly accurate map and a "must" for all who plan a walking pilgrimage, is the new Mount Athos Pilgrim Map.

The original print bears the following inscription (in Greek):
This bronzeplate print of the Holy Monastery of Philotheou on the Holy Mountain of Athos was printed at the personal expense of Nikolas Emmanouel Chionakes of Crete for the salvation of his soul and those of his parents and kin, and it was dedicated freely for pious pilgrims.
Printed in Moscow on 4 August, 1849.
