Mount Athos towers over the spiritual eastern leg of the peninsular.  Home to over 1,400 monks, 20 monasteries and is the preserve of the Greek Orthodox religion.  Woman were actually banned from entering this area and men had to be granted permission purely due to the Greek Orthodox religion,  today everyone is welcome to enjoy the rugged beauty and the gravity defying monasteries sitting on the edge of the rock face.
