Virgin Mary "Skiadeni"

The Monastery of Virgin Mary "Skiadeni" is definitely one of the most picturesque places on the island but also a nice stop for those seeking authenticity. Virgin Mary "Skiadeni" is a beautiful, historic Orthodox church with the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary. It is a renovated, modern and beautiful monastery at the same time, away from the crowds and many tourists, in a quiet environment. Colorful murals, tranquility and utter silence, many cute cats and friendly monks have transformed the monastery into a place of tranquility.

It has a large courtyard area and some shady areas with tables and chairs where you can rest. You may come across friendly and nice monks who offer coffee or mountain tea. The place is blessed, in the middle of nature and in a very well preserved area. The church is richly decorated and the walls adorn very vivid pictures, while the panoramic view is magnificent. The monastery is many kilometers from the city of Rhodes, but worth a visit.
