- Pick up
- Kritinia Castle
If you want to find the place where fascinating history meets breathtaking beauty and dive into the charm of the Greek village, this place is for you. The castle of Kritinia is built on 131 m hill above the village. The original settlement with the name Kritinia was founded by the few families who escaped from Crete when it was taken by the Turks. Hence, the name of the place – Kritinia means New Crete. Initially the village was on the coast but had to be moved to the hill because of the constant threat from the pirates.
Wineries near Embonas village are famous for producing the best wine in Greece. The village itself is incredible, being inland and relatively far from the big cities it is almost untouched and unspoiled by the tourism. Some inhabitants of the village still wear their traditional costumes and preserve local folklore. The houses are also brilliant examples of typical rural Greek architecture. All this looks like the decoration for a movie, but it is not, it is real! Enjoy wine, honey and olive oil tasting.
If you are looking for an off the beaten place to visit or you wish to escape the beach and the waters, Attaviros Mountain is as far as you can get away from the large crowds. Up on Rhodes’ highest peak, you can touch the clouds and even see and explore the ancient Temple. Visible from nearby villages, Attaviros Mountain rises to 1,215 meters above sea level. Sometimes during winter months, the peak of the mountain is covered in snow although it seldom lasts for more than one day. Attaviros is the region’s highest mountain, overlooking some of the small quaint villages in the place. This is nestled among Embonas, Sianna and Agios Isidoros villages. The verdant green mountain hat is occasionally hidden behind the clouds or bathed in the warmth of the sunshine, the mountain has now been considered as a timeless symbol of Rhodes Island.
