location iconThary Monastery

Mony Thari, the Thari Monastery is one of the most beautiful religious landmarks on Rhodes Island. It’s in a forest near Laerma, a traditional Greek village about a one-hour drive from the city of Rhodes.

Often referred to as the Monastery Taxiarchis Michail at Tharri, this abbey has a church dedicated to Archangel Michael and was probably erected sometime between the 9th and 11th centuries. The whole complex dates from the 12th and 13th centuries and passes as one of the most beautiful religious attractions on the island.

The monastery is in a forest – built in the spirit of the time, in an attempt to protect the sacred sites from pirates and other foes. The setting is enchanting today, but it somewhat hides the landmark from the street, making it hard to spot without GPS.

If you can make it, visit the monastery on November the 8th, the day of the Taxiarchis when the Greek Orthodox church honours Archangel Michael.

Acropolis of Lindos
One of the most visited ancient sites on Rhodes, the Acropolis of Lindos dominates the namesake village from a rocky hill on the coast of the Aegean Sea. It’s an impressive sight above the picturesque village with whitewashed cubic homes that contrast with the aquamarine of the Bay of St. Paul and the cobalt blue of the sea.
 
Acropolis of Rhodes
One of the most interesting ancient sites of the island, the Acropolis of Rhodes is in the capital of the island, on Monte Smith. It is a large archaeological site, comprising several points of interest, most of them from the Hellenistic and the Roman periods.
 
Medieval old city of Rhodes
The UNESCO-listed site known as the Medieval City of Rhodes is an absolute must-see destination when you vacation on our island.

Erected in 1472 according to plans by Venetian sculptor and architect Giorgio da Sebenico – also known as Giorgio Orsini – the Castle of Kritinia, or Kastellos as the locals call it, is a stunning fortress erected to protect the village against Ottoman attacks.
