How to visit the monastery on top of mountain on Rhodes
At a high of 240 meters above sea level, on the top of the hill there is the Church of Kato Tsambika. You need to overcome 300 steps to get into it.

At the foot of the hill the Monastery of the Virgin Tsambika is placed - a magnificent white temple, where the icon of the Virgin Mary is kept, which, according to the legend, helps from infertility and protects children, and also patronizes the island of Rhodes. Here you can buy candles in the form of a baby, light it in the front of the holy face of the Virgin and ask for a secret wish.

How to do?
