Discovering the Monasteries
Before you make your plans…
If you are considering a visit, take careful note of the following facts. Strictly, only men are permitted to visit Mount Athos (there are no exceptions to this rule). The number of visitors permitted on the Holy Mountain at any time is tightly restricted and all visitors are, by definition, pilgrims. Whatever your reason for visiting them, the monks will welcome you as a pilgrim.
Staying at the Monasteries
The Pilgrim’s bureau will only arrange your entry to Mount Athos not hospitality / accommodation at the monasteries.
Accommodation during your visit must be arranged directly with the monasteries at which you intend to stay. Complete the form below and send it to the monastery at which you wish to stay.
