   Rhodos island in Dodecanece islands in Aegean Sea in Greece

The Village of  Asklipios


                               The superb Byzantine church and mediaeval castle are the sights that will bring you to this

 tiny but lively village, with its white houses and fairly large population of permanent residents. The heart of the

 village is the square in front of the Church of Theotokou . This is where the children gather to play ball and

 where young mothers  wheel their babies around in their pushchairs where the old men sit and talk, watching

 the visitors ,who sometimes arrive by the busload. You should take a look at the interior of the church ( built

 in 1060 and recently restored ) and admire the extraordinarily fine Byzantine wall paintings .Just next door ,in

 the church's old olive press, there is now a small folklore museum . After visiting the church, take the steep

 winding road up to the castle.

   At the top of the hill the mediaeval fortifications still seem to be watching over Asklipios, offering a marvelous view of the beach stretching end essly from Kiotari all the way to Gennadi.
