Embona

Distance from Rhodes City: 52Km Add your review about Embona

Embonas may not have any picturesque architectural features, however, it is one of the most popular suggestions for a trip inland in Rhodes that combines folklore, a lively atmosphere and good food. It is a village full of life all year round with several tavernas serving people who come here from all over the island to taste the delicious local meat. It is the most important grape-producing village on Rhodes.

Come around harvest time and be sure to find the streets being full of baskets and the courtyards being spread with raisins soaking up the sun. If you visit Emery, the largest winery in the village, join one of the guided tours and engage in some great wine-tasting. There are also three more traditional wineries which are run by small local producers, namely Kounakis, Alexandris and Merkouris, where you can sample the local varieties as well as “suma” (a local strong spirit).

The village offers an abundance of folklore. Try wandering around the small streets, check the colourful hand-oven rugs and visit the Folk Museum. Finally, make your way to the meat tavernas. If you happen to visit in high season, you are also quite likely to come across a dance group dressed up in traditional clothes.
