Greek Orthodox Monastery in Arizona Desert

Saint Anthony's Greek Orthodox monastery is located where you might least expect it -- in the desert south of Phoenix along the old Oracle Road to Tucson. About 40 monks from many parts of the world live at the monastery. It is also a pilgrimage destination for Greek Orthodox faithful from around the world. The monastery was opened in the 1990s and its buildings and remarkable landscaping are still under development.

Photos taken March 2003, December 2007, and December 2013 (in progress).
