 > KOSKINOU
KOSKINOU - Rodos Island
One of the colorful houses of Koskinou on the island of Rhodes - Greece  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 

Beautiful Koskinou is located approximately 6 kilometres away from the capital of Rhodes and is among the best family vacation spots. It was named that way because of its ground that used to look like a sieve due to various excavations that took place there. Others suggest that the village was named Koskinou due to its inhabitants’ occupation who manufactured sieves (“koskina”) and there’s even a third possible reason suggesting that it was named after a city of Lidia from where its first inhabitants are said to have come from.

The area is of a great archaeological interest since excavations that took place brought to the light of day various findings dating back to the 4th century BC, such as tools, vases and other objects and even tombs and artificial caves. The village offers a medieval castle of the 13th century, which was initially constructed in order to protect the inhabitants from the attacks of pirates or other enemies. In the surrounding area you will also have the opportunity to visit the early Christian chapels of Agios Loukas (dating back to the 4th century), Agia Marina and Agia Eirini.

The inhabitants of the village are mostly occupied in agriculture and stock breeding as well as in the production of whitewash. Some are also occupied in the tourist business. There are lots of hotels and rooms to let that can provide a pleasant stay, as well as various cafeterias and restaurants serving traditional Greek food.
