Damatria

Distance from Rhodes City: 20Km Add your review about Damatria

Located on the west coast of Rhodes, Damatria is an inland village. It is believed to be the only village of Rhodes dating back to the Dorian era in the 11th century B.C.
As excavations in the surrounding confirm, the village has been continuously habitation for over 3,000 years. Historians believe this ancient settlement was actually named after the sanctuary of the Goddess Dimitra that has been built in the area.

Damatria is a very lively village with a main square wrapped around an enormous oak tree.
Most of the settlement is typically traditional, with converted homes and pots of multi-coloured geraniums dotted around the village. There are a few natural springs that adorn the countryside and a Second World War memorial in the form of the Italian headquarters, some historic churches and quite a number of ancient ruins and sites, complete the list of attractions to this green and fertile village.
