Philates: the house of Jaffier Pasha (detail), 11, 12, 13 August 1857.
In August 1856 Lear set out from Corfu to visit Mount Athos, a journey that would take him right across the mainland and then via Salonica to the peninsula of Chalkhidiki. Notable sights on the way were the town of Ioannina and the Meteora monasteries.
Lear's written account of the journey, with a selection of his landscape drawings, will be added to this page in due course. His Mount Athos tour will be edited separately.
