The Monastic Republic of Mount Athos (Greek: Αυτόνομη Μοναστική Πολιτεία Αγίου Όρους, romanized: Aftónomi Monastikí Politeía Agíou Órous, lit. 'Autonomous Monastic Republic of the Holy Mountain') is an Eastern Orthodox religious enclave on the Mount Athos peninsula in Northern Greece. The Republic includes 20 monasteries and the settlements that depend on them. The monasteries house around 2,000 Eastern Orthodox Greek, Bulgarian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian and other monks. Women and most female animals are banned from the Republic to forestall temptation in the monks. Wikipedia ->
