 > ASKLIPIOS
ASKLIPIOS - Rodos Island
Church of Asklipios on island Rhodes Greece  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
  The village Asklipios or Asklipiio is nestled in the mountains, built around the castle of Asklipio, a monument that proves the passage of the Knights. It is really worth visiting during your holidays in Greece. There are small white houses, examples of traditional architecture. Right in the centre of the village, there is a splendid church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, built in 1060 A.D., next to the old Olive press, which is now a Folklore Museum. The name Asklipio comes from the scholar of medicine Asklipios. The castle of Asklipio, a Knightly fortress of the 13th century is worth seeing.

The natural area that surrounds Asklipio is of particular beauty and variety with a rich forest of pines and olive groves. In the rivers of the region the endemic species of a small fish called “Ladigesocypris ghigi” (Gizani) is found, which is a species protected by the European Community Legislation.
A visitor can enjoy the routes from the village to the Abbey of Tharri, the region “Stafilia” and the region “Arosali”. There are magical routes to the “Trikolou” and “Kliminta” areas, the abbey of “Tharri” and the village of Vati. Asklipio celebrates the following Virgin “Zoodochos Pigi”. The festival takes place on Friday after Easter during the day. Also, the Transfiguration of the Saviour (the festival takes place on August 5th and 6th) and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. This festival takes place on August 15th.
