  • This is a beatutiful little church, with no doubt loads of history. Off the beaten track but it is well worth the drive to see. A must when visiting the island of Rhodes.

  • A nice suprise, just beside the road. It is a little monastery, with old frescoes from medieval times. The only minus is that you can't find any info about the monastery and it's history. Worth a 10.....  more

  • Beautiful little church in the middle of nowhere. It is opposite a spring of which you can drink the water, as with everything in Greece there is a story about the spring, but I'll let you discover that yourself., You could feel the atmosphere and see the history of the church on the walls. I would have loved to have been there alone to soak up the history but unfortunately I was on a group tour, when you are never alone. One little thing I was unhappy with, there was was a man there, who I presumed was a caretaker of sorts. Several of the group, myself included made donations and lit a candle but as soon as we were out the door he blow the candles out. There are several picnic areas around the church which are very peaceful, if you are hiring a car it would be a good place to stop.
  • A wonderful church with possibly Roman or Byzantine tiles in the stonework. The frescos are awe inspiring and truly reflect their age.Could this site have older pagan connections? - we were intrigued by the large carved stone behind the church. The grounds across the road are quite extensive including an open air theatre(?).
