location iconMonolithos Village

Typical Greek with traditionally white-washed homes with rooftop terraces overlooking the hills and the sea, Monolithos Village is a little over an hour drive from Leonardo Kolymbia Resort on Rhodes. You can visit the hamlet to take a stroll on its streets and to observe the lifestyle of the locals.

The most popular attraction in Monolithos, however, is a Medieval fortress constructed in 1480 by the Knights Hospitaller (officially known as the Order of Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem). The Knights erected their castle on a rock that raises 100 metres above sea level. The ascent to the gates is strenuous on a pathway with slippery steps – enough to challenge potential foes but even the tourists today. This access route is one of the reasons why the castle was never conquered. Spectacular views of the Aegean Sea reward the effort to reach the top of the rock.

Most of the Monolithos (meaning, in Greek “one rock”) lays in ruin. Besides a small, white-washed chapel dedicated to Saint Panteleimon, those who access the summit will also notice almost at every step stacks of rocks arranged from large to small to remain in balance. These are purposely assembled by tourists to serve as mementoes. Don’t forget your camera: a day trip to Monolithos Village is also worthwhile for its photo ops.

Filerimos Mountain
You can reach Filerimos Mountain in less than 40 minutes by car when you stay at Leonardo Kolymbia Resort on Rhodes. It’s worth the drive because it offers plenty to see and do on a day trip.
 
Kallithea Springs
Less than a half-an-hour drive from Leonardo Kolymbia Resort and about nine kilometres south of the City of Rhodes, Kallithea Springs count among the gems of the island. They are a natural spa and therapeutic waters in a superb natural setting.
 
Seven Springs valley
In a valley that looks like a movie set, the Seven Springs of Rhodes are nature’s respite from the heat of the summer. Natural springs make their way over the rocks in a verdant pine and plane woodland until eventually flow through a tunnel into a small, manmade lake.
 
Boat Trip to Lindos Village
A boat trip to Lindos village offers more than transport – it’s a complete, fully-rounded experience, most of the times including swimming and snorkelling, several stops for photo ops, and time to explore the Acropolis of Lindos and the village at your pace.
 
Boat trip to Anthony Quinn, Kallithea bays & Traganou caves
One of the most rounded boat tours available, when you stay on Rhodes, will take you to see the scenic Anthony Quinn Bay and Kallithea Bay, stopping to both for swimming and snorkelling. Exploring the Traganou Cave is part of the experience too.
 
Rhodes 4WD Safari
When you want to explore the countryside of the island and areas with rugged terrain, choosing the Rhodes 4WD Safari can provide a fantastic, memorable, and safe experience. It may not be just yet on the visitors’ must-see list, but it can be fun and rewarding, as it can drive you to areas that are otherwise remote and hard to access, especially if you are not into hiking.
