Psinthos in Rhodes

Very close to Faliraki is village Psinthos. Characteristics are the running waters in fountain Fasouli and the age long plane trees, which reveal the beauty of Rhodes countryside.

Psinthos is a classic Greek small village. At the village square the visitor can see a church dedicated to Virgin Mary.

Try the high quality honey from local producers. The taverns in Psinthos specialize in grilled meat. If you decide you want to have a typically local meal, pitta-bread and fruit with a nice cold bottle of retsina wine, this is the place. Life centers round the village square where you can see quite a lot of people just sitting back and, to use a well known phrase, "watching the world go by". A visit of the church festival, 8. September, is a must. It is always accompanied by good food, music and dance. Psinthos is famous as the site of the last battle between the Turks and Italians.
