Photographer's Note

Mylopotamos, a small monastic complex, is depented to Megisti Lavra Monastery. Its tower was built in 10th century. Since then, because its healthy climate, the place was used for grapes' cultivation and ill monks' residence. In the end of 19th century Ioakim III, patriarch of Constantinople, stayed there for 12 years, after his exile. Today it is inhabited by two monks, cultivating grapes and distilling wine and ouzo.
Oriel (sahnishi in Greek, from a Persian word, meaning "king's view") is common in the Northern Greek and Balkan traditional architecture.
