Around the most central spot of Ouranoupolis, in the square of Prosforion Tower, just a few meters far away from the bustling harbor – the gate for Mount Athos, you have the unique opportunity to go shopping, since the gifts shop “Agioritiko” offers original products, made by athonian monks.
A great variety of icons, incense, myrrh, “tear of Virgin Mary” and original athonite handmade pieces compose the image of a store that is addressed to many people but also to the few ones. The “Agioritiko”, moreover, supports and relies on the monks’ production, promoting the monastic tradition.
And while the eye is literally lost in the hagiographies and the sense of smell is extinguished by the monastic aromas, the family members undertake to inform you (in Greek, English, Russian and Romanian) about everything, to explain to you “how and why”, to take you on a virtual trip around the Athonian workshops – where the monks inspire and create…
Yes. The atmospheric “Agioritiko” is here, waiting for you and inviting you. Your purchases – really – will compensate you.
