    To the Church of the Prophet Elias (Profitis Ilias), based on the homonymous Hill, with a height of 800 metres, travelled by car along the steep steep serpentine among coniferous forests. Forest-the wilderness protection zone where inhabited by different animals, such as small deer q-q, which are the symbol of Rhodes and grow rare orchids. At the very top of the wooded mountains worth inconspicuous, small, pure white Temple. From the simplicity of a feeling of peacefulness and thought uskromnjajutsja. People here are rare, and only once a year-2 August, the day of the Prophet Elijah, a church service is held. There is an opportunity to put candles and pray. Say, before there lived a hermit monk who followed the church until his death. The Greeks love to get married in this inconspicuous Temple because it brings family happiness. The mountain opens with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding area. Near the temple there is a TOCSIN Bell Bell, made out of a cannon projectile-memories of the war. Left and concrete fixings, similar to the dot. Interesting place-peace and war.

And for the small history next to the hotel still in operation is the House that is reserved mussolini when he came to the island. Total change in any case.
