Welcome to Tsambika Monastery

The road to Tsambika monastery turns off the main road, some meters before the road to Tsambika beach. The road leads half of the way up on the hill. From this point you will have to walk up the hill, following the 350 steps. On the top of the hill you will find the tiny, Byzantine church, dedicated to Our Lady. It's perched high at 300 m with commanding coastal views, both north over Kolymbia and south over Tsambika beach until Lindos, which makes it worth the climb up. The legend is, that any woman, who has problems, having children should go up there (barefoot), to pray to the Virgin and she will be blessed with children. Here on Rhodes the success of this visit means the child must be called Tsambikos if it's a boy, and Tsambika if it's a girl. This name is unique on Rhodes. If you doubt this habit, just call this name out on a busy street, and you will see how successful the monastery is. The saints day is the 7. September

There are a couple of great tavernas en route to the beach and perfect for some well earned refreshment after your climb.
