Beehives of Vatopedi Monastery

Tradition says that the monks have been producing exceptional honey since ancient times, as honey is an essential form of nutrition mainly in the fasting days, and is also used as an accompaniment to the tea infusions that are being offered to the innumerable pilgrims to the Monastery.

The populations of the bees are all local species. They feed exclusively on the rich and unspoiled flora of Mount Athos, which, due to the ideal weather conditions that prevail, is rich and generous year round.
