This monastery is absolutely worth a visit. The site is atop a hill overlooking Rhodes & the sea. It was almost deserted when were there which was a bonus. The church is small , simple & lovely ( a relief after some of the baroque cathedrals in Austria). The grounds are worth a wander around - there is lots of shade - and many lovely views. In the courtyard there is an outdoor pulpit which you can ascend & a tree which appears to have wishes or prayers attached to the branches by other visitors. The monks' cells are all closed up but there are small wall markers painted near some of the cells. Down below at the snack bar/gift shop you can buy an island liqueur. Apparently the monks gave the recipe to a local boy who is now an old man & the only person who has the recipe for this concoction. It is not the smoothest drink but it has a great story!
