  • 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.

  • Byzantine Church formerly belonging to a monastery, of cultural and natural interest: beautiful Byzantine frescos of the 15th, a haven of peace and freshness provided by the presence of a source.

  • Only the chirping of cicadas will accompany you during your visit to this little gem or the sides of the door are the Byzantine frescoes and his family. Not to be missed
