  • Tsambika is a high mountain, about 45 minutes drive from Rhodes Town, at the top of the mountain there is a monastery that has ancestry far back in time. Fishermen found Nämnligen an icon on the beach, which is now found in the monastery located at the foot of the mountain. The Bkev rise to the monastery on the mountain. But it's a long story. There were women who were barren to possibly be in a blessed state. In the olden days, these women would walk barefoot up for the many stairs leading up to the monastery. They then received the priest's blessing and in many cases they became fertile and then pregnant. This is why there are only children in Rhodes called Tsambika (Girls) and Tsambiko (boys). I can offer a egengjord video that tells a little more about the legend, just contact lars.borre@icloud.com, and I'll send it.

  • Beautiful view on the coast... Leaving the beach of Tsambika, a concrete road on the right of the pass, allows to go back to the monastery of Tsambika. You have to leave your car in a small parking lot and climb many steps to get to the top. A little chapel is upstairs. The view is splendid on the cliff and the coast. Not to be missed...
