On Mount Athos' peak (2027m. high), a place attracting a lot of thunderbolts, exists a church, built in the end of 19th century and dedicated to Lord's Transfiguration. Many pilgrims or tourists climb up a steep footpath to the top, where they get a marvellous view of the Athonite peninsula and Northern Agean sea. This cross, above the church, was put there by the Patriarch of Constantinople Ioakim III in 1897.
