This is marvellous. What a feat to have built that so high in the air.

It must be so restful up there.

Bernard, some of them are on the tops of pinnacles & no one has figured out how they could have carried up the building supplies. It's really awesome...& these monasteries stretch 130 miles along the Greek coast.

Restful. Yes. I wish I were there now.

Very mystical. One might wonder how they live, & I find it very appealing. Tending gardens in the high, clear air....praying by candlelight, they look like Rembrant paintings.

John, have you a picture of one? I would love to see it. I'll bet it is not as austere as these on the Greek Coast.

Lucija, the picture is truly mystical as Wolfgang said.

Something mythical about it as well. Beautiful!

If John has pictures, I'd like to see them too.
