Mesanagros

Distance from Rhodes City: 75Km Add your review about Mesanagros

Leaving Lachania and driving through a marvelous route, you will find Mesanagros.
Messanagros is a traditional village hidden between the mountains. It has small houses, examples of rural architecture that scetch out the tradition of the area. The village was first built high in the mountains, and the reason was to avoid the pirate raids. The village's square is also interesting due to the church of the "Assumption of the Virgin Mary", built in the 13th century in the middle of an older paleochristian church which was built in the 6th century. Moreover around the settlement a lot of archaeological discoveries of paleochristian temples are found.
Among the religious monuments in Mesanagros, the one that stands out is the monastery of Saint Thomas (Byzantine monastery,14th century, built on the ruins of an older paleochristian monastery)

Other religious monuments are:
Saint Thomas (14th century)
Saint George (18th century)
Saint Nicholas (20th century)
Holy Cross or Saint John in “Stavros” area
Archangel Michael (19th century)
Prophet Elias (19th century)
Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi (18th century)
Natural environment

The area of Mesanagros reveals the beauty and the simplicity of nature. A visit to the region "Skala" of Saint Thomas, can also be very interesting. A landscape with waterfalls, forest with conifers and with rich fauna and flora.

If a visitor climbs Stavros mountain they will be able to see where the two seas of Rhodes meet. The existing rural roads lead to the villages of Arnitha and Apolakkia.
