Saint Soulas

The monastery of Agios Silas is set in a lush woodland. Inside the temple and opposite the entrance, on the north side, there is a water source inside an artificial cave. According to tradition, the water that springs up, even today, has healing properties. The miraculous holy water is curing various skin diseases and especially scabies.

In the wider area there are sports facilities (soccer field, basketball court, tennis court), a traffic park and a rudimentary carousel where horse racing is organized during the multi-day festival in honor of Saint (July 20-30). It is one of the largest festivals in the whole island of Rhodes. The pilgrims come several days earlier and make temporary lodgings, where they stay until the end of the fest.
