As mentioned before in other posts on this weblog, Athos keeps surprizing me with unknown places and buildings, like this small chapel of St. George. According to the Rumenian Pemptousia website the chapel lies on a half an hour climb from Morfonou in the direction of the Provata area.
The chapel belongs to Lavra. Lavra monks recently (?) started with the renovation of the chapel, that obviously is in need for a quick repair. The surrounding area is cleared.
Here are the pictures (thanks Pemptousia):
The last picture in the dome showes Christ Pantocrator: according to Pemptousia the image has many similarities with the frescoes in the church Protaton in Karies, the capital of the Holy Mountain.
