archangelos, Rhodos |

The largest village in Rhodes, whose name means 'archangel', opened its doors to tourism towards the end of the 1980s. However, much of its authenticity has been preserved. The whitewashed houses, the cobbled, bumpy alleys and the easy life of the villagers exert a great attraction on visitors.

In the middle of the old village center, the free-standing bell tower of the main church stands out, which is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. The tower dates from the period of the Italian occupation. The church itself was already consecrated in 1845. On the edge of the village are the heavily weathered ruins of a Johannite fortress built in 1467.

The village of Archangelos (Archangelos) is considered very faithful to traditions. The center of the village is dominated by the Church of the Archangel Michael, with its beautiful bell tower from 1845.

The first impression of Archangelos is probably not very positive, as it gives you the feeling of a Greek provincial town - a pile of concrete with noisy cafes and nowhere to park. Archangelos, however, is considered one of the most faithful to the village traditions.
