The beautiful and picturesque village of Monolithos, a great place to spend your island holidays, is located on the west coast of Rhodes, in its south part. Its ideal for those who enjoy hiking, since all visitors have the ability to discover its beauty by walking in its traditional pathways. One of the most beautiful walkways is undeniably the 2-kilometers -long road that leads to the castle of Monolithos. If you decide to go there you are going to have a chance to visit the chapel of Agios Panteleiomon, located within the boundaries of the Castle which dates back to the 15th century and is built on a huge rock. This very rock (“lithos” in greek) is the reason why the village of Monolithos was named that way.
Another sight of the area that you shouldn’t miss the chance to visit is the picturesque bay of Fourni with its clear blue waters and its golden sand. After your tour in the area you can take a rest under the shady trees or set out to discover some of the caves located nearby. Monolithos, despite being a small village, can offer most of the services you will ever going to need to assure you a pleasant stay, such as hotels and rooms to let, taverns serving greek specialties, both modern and traditional coffee shops.
