Skete of the Annunciation (Bogoroditsa)

The skete Bogoroditsa belongs to the Holy Monastery of Saint Panteleimon. It is situated in a forested area, between the monasteries of Vatopedi and Pantokrator. It lies on the site of the preexisting monastery of Xylourgos. Xylourgos (meaning Carpenter) had been a fully, independent Russian community known from as early as 1020. The majority of the community moved in 1169 to the Monastery of St. Panteleimon, but Xylourgos continued to thrive through the 11th and 12th century.

It follows the coenobitic way of monastic life. The Kyriakon is dedicated to the Dormition of the Mother of God.
