Mandriko is situated on the western coast between Kalavarda and Kamiros Scala. It is a small village producing almost 1/3 of all vegetables for the whole island. From the road passing through, you can make out a large number of greenhouses and agricultural fields. Inside this charming village you can enjoy a slower pace of life and the sunset views from here are absolutely breath-taking. A small square with a typical cafÃ© and the church dedicated to Saint Lucy can be found here. In the evening many of the locals will sit back, sip on their Greek coffee of glass of ouzo, play backgamon and discuss the more important village issues.
The village Archangelos (Arhangelos) is regarded very faithful to traditions. The centre of the village is dominated by the church of the Archangel Michael, with its fine campanile dating from 1845.

The village of Afandou in Rhodes has been founded in times where pirates used to overrun the islands of the Mediterranean. During that period, people used to leave the shores in order to seek shelter in the inland. The village of Afandou took its name form the word "áfandos ", which in Greek means "invisible", because it could not be seen from the sea.
