THE ISLAND OF RHODES
Rhodes is one of the largest islands in Greece. The origin of the name “Rhodes” is mainly associated with the rose, sacred flower of the god Sun. Since antiquity, Rhodes had many names associated with the vegetation and the shape of the island. In the city of Rhodes there is the Medieval Town, which has been included since 1988 in the UNESCO's World Heritage site.
You should definitely attend and see the local religious festivals of the island where you'll have the chance to witness cultural events that will certainly be unforgettable for you. One of these is the procession of the Holy Epitaph in Easter, in Archangelos Village. At 04:00 in the morning of Holy Saturday there is plenty of crowd in the streets of the village, following the Holy Epitaph and chanting hymns. Don't miss it!
