At Mt. Athos A Thousand Years Are As One Day…..

A Byzantine cross by the sea marks the border between Mount Athos in northern Greece and the 21st century.

Prayers have been offered in its monasteries every day, with no interruption, for more than a thousand years.

It was set aside by ancient emperors to be the spiritual capital of Orthodox Christianity and has probably changed less over the centuries than any other inhabited place on the planet.
