Photographer's Note

The coast at Gomati has one of the most sandy shores on the island. In this region, during the 14th century, many settlements existed and some farm-houses belonging to the Monasteries of Athos. The one named Theomitoros was the most important possession of Megisti Lavra on the island. Till 1928 a monk lived here. The small uninhabited island just north of Gomati, called Sirghisti - the Byzantine Sideritis - also belonged to the Monastery. Papia, which is a coast in the east, is known as an excellent fishing place. (
