Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
Even if the small waterfall is not much, a trip to the Seven Springs is worth it just for the delicious food at absolutely fair prices! We will definitely come again. The tunnel is quite funny, but also a bit scary!

Butterfly Valley (Valley of Butterflies)
There is free parking, and it was a hike through a pleasantly shady valley where you can watch thousands of butterflies sitting on the trees. All the bridges and pathways seemed very safe to me and are new. We have not hiked the valley completely because it was already full of visitors again, and keeping distance in some places was impossible. so I recommend to bring a mask!

Butterfly Valley (Valley of Butterflies)
About 3.5 kilometers long route through the valley of the butterflies.
In itself very recommendable but note that it is only uphill, and in the summer heat it can be quite exhausting. But it is worth it. There are also many different lizards to see.

Butterfly Valley (Valley of Butterflies)
Despite the warm weather, our experience was very pleasant and worthwhile. The many small animals, from crabs to countless butterflies are definitely worth a trip. Recommended.

Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
Visiting the seven springs was a nice change from the daily beach routine for us. The walk through the water tunnel is for people with claustrophobia and a height over 180cm not recommended. But you can reach the lake from the path that runs above the tunnel as well.

Tsambika Monastery
I visited Rhodes with my friend and we rented a car. One day driving we found a place where some busess were parking. We wanted to see the place and it was Tsampika monastery on the bottom of the hill. We did not know anything about the place and miracles, we only visited the church. I have bought a booklet about the history of the place in a little store by the church, where I have read about Our Lady of Tsampika. A year later I visited the place with another friend and we climbed the mountain and visited the chapel on the place where the icon was found. Because my oldest daughter had a very severe endometriosis and doctors said to her she had only 2% hope to have a child, I prayed for her in the chapel and wrote a prayer to the book there. After some time my daughter became pregnant and she finaly had a beautiful little girl who is 3 years old now. During few days she expects another baby! Thank you, Our Lady of Tsampika!

Tsambika Monastery
We came to Rhodes for our honeymoon in May 2019...Through the help of our hotel they arranged for us to have our own chauffer and visit all the wonderful places, sights and landmarks in Greece... Tsambika monastery being one of many... when this beautiful place and its legend was told to us me & my husband jumped at the chance to visit... you see we had been trying to conceive for 10 years, absolutely trying everything... and still nothing happened for us... The experience was like nothing we had ever experienced, surrounded by the breath taking views was magical and very over whelming... I felt closeness to all of the mothers that had the same heart breaking difficulties of trying to concieve too... when saying our goodbyes before returning home I was still skeptical and did not hope too much as did not want to be disappointed again even though we were told we would visit again one day but holding our child... I smiled and only hoped this could ever be true....Exactly 6 mths months later to leaving the island I found out me & my husband was pregnant...we now have a beautiful precious son born on July 2020! We still pinch ourselves everyday that we are dreaming... When I had lost all hope of ever becoming a mummy, I truly believe this amazing place gave me and my husband our precious miracle...Looking forward to the day that we can visit again with our son soon!

Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
I have to admit that we expected more, the area is very nice and quiet though and there is a nice little river. There is also a tunnel, which we did not know that you can walk through, so did not manage to see the waterfall. There is a restaurant right inside the nature where you can eat something. There are also peacocks and ducks, which are happy about bread (but not recommended as it is not their natural food). People with limited mobility will not find it easy to visit.

Tsambika Monastery
My mother climbed all 309 steps in 1962 to pray for my birth. I was born in March of 1963. My first name at birth was Tsambika and Kari my middle. My mother is Greek from Chania, Crete. Unfortunately, we moved to the US and no one could say my name so they legally changed it to my middle name. I have visited Tsambika several times and walked the same path as my mother and will return again when travel restrictions are lifted. Blessings to all who visit and pray.
