If you are looking for unique vacation spots, Emponas is another traditional and picturesque village of Rhodes that will surely delight you. It is built at 850 meters altitude on the mountain of Attaviros, which makes it the highest standing village of the whole island of Rhodes. Due to its geographic location that almost completely isolates Emponas from from the rest of the island, the village has remained unaffected from the effects of tourism. This fact has contributed a lot to the maintenance of its cultural identity and heritage, that passes unchanged from the older generations to the new ones. With that being said, don’t be surprised if you see the inhabitants of the village still wearing their traditional local outfits.
A traditional village like Emponas would be unlikely not to have its traditional coffee shops and restaurants as well as some small shops selling handworks made by the women of the village. The houses are picturesque and beautiful, both outside and on their inside decoration. There are also a few rooms to let.
