  • Got into this place by chance. Surprised by its purity and tranquility. Inside are not visited, admired under the shade of the trees across the road. There is a parking place and equipped picnic-tables and benches, is the source of drinking water.

  • This church dates from the 15th century and of course, the frescoes have aged accordingly, but perhaps that accounts for the charm. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Jewel in the mountains of Rhodes. There is a small parking lot with a source. The Chapel is open and can be visited. A further highlight on Rhodes.

  • The entire island it seems that is dotted with similar sites. Anyway, worth a stop in the trip around the island.

  • Who want to enjoy not only the beautiful beaches vacation, takes on Rhodes also many interesting and beautiful landscapes, which it is worth to look at. Including the Chapel is Agios of Nikolaos Foundoukli (Greek Άγιος Νικόλαος Φουντουκλί) on the road between Eloussa (roughly four kilometers outside of Eloussa on the left side) and the Profitis Ilias. According to a legend, a senior Byzantine official built around 1400 as four conch building the chapel after arguably his three children were gathered across within a short time by a plague. The well-preserved frescoes show among other things the children with their parents, which passed the Church of Christ (as a model). Christ blesses them, left and right make intercession for the dead Mary and John of the Baptist. On the opposite wall is a pipe dream of parents to see: your three children are already in Paradise intimated by vines and birds. Also child-like motifs such as a frog or cats are depicted on the frescoes. Worth seeing are also the alabaster window in the Tambour of the dome. The chapel threatened at the beginning of the 20th century, and was supported by the Italians, the former occupying power and rebuilt the dome. Therefore, the dome has even no frescoes.
