St Sergius' Well-Chapel

St Sergius' Well-Chapel (July 2012)

On the way to the lavra from the station between the viewing platform and the lavra, at the bottom of the hill, is the quaint 17th century St Sergius' Well-Chapel which stands over a natural spring, which according to legend was started by St Sergius himself. Normally you will see lots of people here filling empty bottles with holy water.
