New Pictures of Amalfion

Here are some pictures (new to my eyes) of the former Latin rite monastery of Orthodox monks upon the holy mountain Athos (which closed in 1287 due to a dwindling brotherhood). Hat tip: Mystagogy blog.












Holy Venerable Western Fathers, pray to God for us!

Considering the track is visible and not completely overgrown, it would appear that somebody must go there on occasion.
In these photos, it does not appear to be covered in snakes as some have said elsewhere.
What is the last picture of though?
