Each route is connected to an international historical uniqueness:

  • Mount Athos and the Byzantine Empire,

  • The Ottoman period Mamedochoria.

The difference between many walking routes around the world and those in the Mount Athos Area is that each one takes visitors through different historical eras putting the walker in direct contact with relics and archaeological find, turning walking from a mere nature-loving activity to a historical tour through monuments and site, with museum value and identity!
