Katounakia 


Katounakia

Not far, and in a higher level than Karoulia, someone can find the hermitage Katounakia. The landscape there is calmer in comparison to the one in Karoulia. The 35 monks that live there deal with hagiography and wood carving. The Katounakia is a famous world thanks to the existence of the house Danieline of the hagiography, that was founded by the monk Daniel when he went there to live ascetically. There are also hermitages in Vigla, in the Cherry tree and in Saint Vasilios, all of which are found in distant and difficult to reach places at the higher altitudes of Athos.
