Virgin Mary "Tsambika"

The church of Virgin Mary "Tsambika" in Rhodes is the protector of the island and has done countless miracles all over the world. It is said that it gives a blessing to childless mothers to have a child. Virgin Mary "Tsambika" is honored and worshiped in two places. Approximately three kilometers east of Archangelos village is a monastery complex built in honor of the Virgin Mary. In that area there was a necropolis from the Mycenaean era. In addition, two kilometers from the village of Archangelos, there is also a small chapel of Virgin Mary "Tsambika", called Psili or Kyra, which is built on the top of a hill and at a height of 326 meters.

The monastery celebrates on 8 September each year, where in both monasteries in its honor, a crowd of people arrives to take a blessing and embrace the image of Virgin Mary "Tsambika".
