This is a beatutiful little church, with no doubt loads of history. Off the beaten track but it is well worth the drive to see. A must when visiting the island of Rhodes.

A nice suprise, just beside the road. It is a little monastery, with old frescoes from medieval times. The only minus is that you can't find any info about the monastery and it's history. Worth a 10 minute visit.
Beside the monstary and near the parking, there are great spots for picnic spots and you can even find an open air barbeque to use.

It’s a small 14/15 century church with surprisingly intact wall paintings from the same period. Worth the short diversion from the main road. Free and open all day.

Late Byzantine church containing 15th century frescoes.
In the beginning of the 20th Century the dome almost collapsed but it was rebuilt by the Italian Regime and because of this restauration the dome has no Frescoes anymore.
Very nice and a must see when in Rhodes!

A small church by the side of the road with parking opposite.

The frescos are old, but beautiful. The church is tranquil and cool.

There is a small water feature opposite and when we stopped the local goats were climbing the trees.

Free to enter. Active place of worship so please respect this in conduct and attire.

Great little stop in the forests in the hillside, natural spring encased in marble in lay-by opposite the church, water tastes great, very different from what you expect. Local farmers sell their olive oil, cheeses, honey and fruit and veg. from their vans and trucks nearby.

Rhodes Old Town is amazing, but we found Lindos underwhelming. What we wanted was a bit more history and a bit less tourist attraction so after the excellent Ancient Kamiros, we headed into the hills taking the scenic route home. Agios Nikolaos is on the map but our guide book just talked of blurry frescoes.

The small church (no more than a chapel really) is off to the side of a very quiet road next to a children's playground with some toilets and wild goats roaming around.Opposite the church there is a small parking area and a water fountain next to an olive tree.

The church has that classic Orthodox cruciform shape with a domed roof. Inside, it is almost completely covered in frescoes. Yes they are not in perfect condition but most are clear and the colours are not faded. It's very atmospheric, absolutely free of charge (but hopefully you'll want to donate generously) and we had it to ourselves.

A good example of why it's sometimes worth taking the scenic route home; you never know what you'll find. Even if you find nothing of interest, the scenery alone is worth the trip and it will only cost you some fuel.

Visited this week as part of an island tour. High in the mountains and very remote. Tiny old church. Beautiful frescos. Gardens and trees around with lovely views. Local producer selling wares. Small fountain and very old olive tree out front. So peaceful.

Somewhat off the regular path of tours, there were only three of us to explore this old building. Our guide explained lots of what was there. I was surprised to see how many other folks had been there (burned candles).
