It is located near the cape of Mt Athos, near [[Little St. Anne's Skete (Athos)|Little St. Anne's Skete]]. St Anne's Skete has the distinction of being the largest and oldest skete of Mt Athos and was founded to preserve the left foot of [[Anna|St Anne]], the Mother of the [[Theotokos]]. There are 51 brotherhood houses at St Anne's Skete, inhabited by 85 monks. The houses each have different handicrafts - some fishing, some gardening, others [[iconography]], wood carving, miniature art or [[incense]]. The main church was built and frescoed in 1754, when it was dedicated to St Anne, and it holds the relics of several saintly [[martyr]]s of the Church. ==See also=====Internal links===*[[St. John the Baptist Skete (Athos)|St. John the Baptist Skete]], attached to the Great Lavra.*[[Kavsokalyvia Skete (Athos)|Kavsokalyvia Skete]], attached to the Great Lavra.*[[Little St. Anne's Skete (Athos)|St. Anne's Skete]], attached to the Great Lavra.*[[Gerasimos (Papadopoulos) of Abydos|Gerasimos of Abydos]], on Mt Athos between 1928 and 1934, lived at St Anne's and was tonsured by Father [[Chrysostomos (Kartsonas)]]. ===External link===*[ Athos monasteries: The Minor Skete of Saint Anne] [[Category: Monasteries]][[Category: Greek Monasteries]][[Category: Athonite Monasteries]][[Category: Sketes]]
