Psinthos is a classic Greek small village. Characteristics are the running waters in fountain Fasouli and the age-long platania, revealing the beauty of Rhodes countryside. 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 specializes 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.
