Piles of the wood by the sawmill of the old monastery of Iviron on the eastern coast of the Athos peninsula. This monastery which has been founded in the 10th century is one of the oldest on the Athos. Wood processing has been one of the oldest occupations of the monks who prepare the wood for permanent renovation of ancient parts of the monastery buildings as well as for heating the monastery during winter months. This tradition does not change.
