Archipolis, Rhodes

Welcome to the enchanting village of Archipolis (also known as Archipoli or Arhipoli), a lively, traditional gem nestled in the heart of Rhodes. Legend has it that the village's first inhabitants settled on the nearby mountain called Axintes. Steeped in history, Archipolis is said to be named after a Cretan prince, Archepolis, who sought refuge in this idyllic haven to recuperate from a grave illness.

As you wander through the bustling heart of the village, the settlement's vibrant thoroughfare beckons with its charming shops, traditional taverns, cozy cafés, and lively bars. Breathe in the invigorating mountain air, perfumed with the scent of ancient pine trees that envelop the village in a verdant embrace.

A mere 3 km from the village center, the awe-inspiring church of Saint Nektarius awaits your exploration. This picturesque sanctuary, renowned for its size and beauty, is a sought-after venue for weddings and christenings. Inside, you'll be captivated by the stunning icons and frescoes adorning the walls.

Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in the rich cultural and spiritual heritage of this enchanting corner of Rhodes Island.
