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 even said to give a blessing to childless mothers to have a child. Virgin Mary "Tsambika" is honored and worshiped in two places. About two kilometers from Archangelos village, there is a small chapel of Virgin Mary "Tsambika", Psili or Kyra as it is called, which is built on the top of a hill and at a height of 326 meters. The visitor is fascinated by the panoramic views and the chilling landscape.
Also, about three kilometers east of Archangelos village, is a monastery complex built in honor of the Virgin Mary of Tsambika. In that area there was a necropolis from the Mycenaean era.
