The Monastery Esphigmenou is built in a bay of the northeastern side of Athos peninsula, right on the shore. In this monastery disembarked the leader of the Macedonian Revolution of 1821, Emanuel Papas. The reunion of the principals of all the monasteries was held here. In particular, the leader of the reunion, Eythymios, was a member of the “Society of Friends” (a well known Greek association during the War of Greek Independence).
