      Culturally and geographically, Athos is a world apart. Its fortified Byzantine-style monasteries, most built between the 10th and 15th centuries, are scattered over a hilly, heavily forested peninsula – a bit more than 7 miles wide and nearly 35 miles long. The tip of Mount Athos is a barren spire soaring 6, feet above the Aegean.
