Huts St. Pavlou 


Huts St. Pavlou

New skete belongs to the holy abbey of Saint Pavlos. It is found near the sea, between the abbey of Saint Pavlos and the skete of Saint Annis. It was founded in the 18th century. Near the skete have been found a lot of graves, coins and other handmade objects. These discoveries support the concept that during the ancient years one of the cities of Athos existed there. Today, new skete is Greek and follows the strange way of the monastic life. It consists of twenty eight huts that are lived by 40 monks that deal with hagiography, wood carving and culture. The library of the skete has 200 manuscripts and 500 old printed books.
