Pilgrim Maps of Mount Athos

The Friends of Mount Athos is very pleased to announce the publication of the Pilgrim Map of Mount Athos. The new map, available in several different languages, formats, scales and prices, was developed by FoMA member and cartographer, Peter Howorth, in collaboration with members of FoMA's Footpaths Project. No pilgrim should be without it, as it is the only map of the Holy Mountain that is professionally produced, based on GPS coordinates and NASA topographical information, and is being continually updated. We recommend using the map in combination with the individual footpath descriptions prepared and updated annually by FoMA's footpaths team, available in both Greek and English.
