 > SALAKOS
SALAKOS - Rodos Island
Church of the the mansion of governor Del Vecchi  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 

 

Salakos is a lush green village, considered ideal for kid friendly vacations, built on the foot of the hill of Profitis Elias, approximately 40 kilometres southeast of the capital of Rhodes with a population of a little more than 600. The main reason for its lush green environment is the natural springs, where crystalline water flow from to the rest of the area. In particular there are lots of pine trees and walnuts and the spot is famous for its healthy climate. Salakos was first inhabited during the prehistoric age along with the other big Rhodian cities that flourished during antiquity such as Ialisos, Lindos and Kameiros. Thus, its archaeological significance is unquestionable, even though lots of the findings of the excavations that took place in the area have been transferred to big foreign museums like the Louvre and the British Museum. You can also visit the monastery of Profitis Elias on top of the hill of the same name and the Byzantine churches of Agios Georgios and Agios Nikolaos. In the area there are lots of mansions that have remained since the Italian rule, with the mansion of governor Del Vecchi among them.

There are a few exceptional beaches to swim in the surrounding area of Salakos. You will also have the chance to dine at the taverns situated right next to the sea or to have a refreshment in one of the traditional coffee shops of the village. If you like the mountain and the sea equally you can include them both in your vacation plan by choosing a room in one of the typical mountain hotels that are located within a distance of 6 kilometres.
