Pantokratoros monastery

Pantokratoros monastery

Two brothers, John and Alexis, founded the Pantocrator Monastery in the name of Christ Pantocrator in 1363 as indicated in the inscription on the stairs to the belfry. The monastery is built on a rocky hill, at a short distance by the sea , close to the Stavronikita Monastery.

Between the late of 14th century and the early of 15th centure, several small monasteries were attached to the Pantocrator monastery. One of them was the monastery of Ravdouxos, which nowadays is a cell of the Koutloumousiou monastery. In the temple of the cell there are frescoes of the 12th century and paintings of 10th. The monastery housed a library and a rich collection of holy pictures. This collection is one of the most important you can see at the mount Athos ( holy pictures of “Christos Pantokratoras”(14th) and “Graptos Stayros”(14th).

The monastery is celebrated at Transfiguration.
