Istrios

Distance from Rhodes City: 70Km Add your review about Istrios

Just a few kilometers from Profilia lies the village of Istrios.
Istrios is a small and picturesque village where you can find a big restful square which shows its friendly and hospitable face to visitors.
Walking to the end of the village you will find the beautiful tabernacle of Saint Merkourios (17th century) built over the ruins of an older Byzantine temple. Saint Merkourios is the patron saint of Istrios and that is why the village’s central church is also dedicated to him.

Surrounded by pinewoods, olive groves and vines, the village of Istrios brings visitors close to nature. The region that extends around Istrios, the dam of Apolakkia's and Profilia, is of particular natural beauty. It is a shelter for wild life and it is protected by the European Network "NATURA 2000".
If you enjoy walking, there are a lot of paths and rural roads.
In the region "Kipolistis", a visitor will discover waterfalls, a forest with pines and will enjoy the region's rich fauna and flora.
