Discover Lachania: A Tranquil Village Gem ๐Ÿก

Nestled at the foot of the island's interior mountains, the village of Lachania beckons with its timeless charm and picturesque beauty. Let's embark on a journey through the idyllic scenes of Lachania:

A Picturesque Oasis of Calm ๐ŸŒณ

Immerse yourself in the serene ambiance of Lachania, where two plane trees, four water troughs, and six tables adorn the village square, creating an atmosphere of undisturbed peace and quiet. The low white houses, adorned with blue doors and windows, tile roofs, and carved stone gateways, complete this enchanting setting.

Panoramic Views and Artistic Community ๐ŸŒ„

Situated at the foot of the mountains, Lachania treats visitors to a panoramic view of valleys stretching to the sea. Regarded as perhaps the most beautiful village on Rhodes, Lachania surprises each visitor with a true postcard setting and an atmosphere of absolute tranquility. Many well-maintained traditional houses are now homes to a youthful and artistic community, with foreigners and those from Rhodes appreciating the village's allure.

The village square, featuring a traditional cafe under the plane tree, offers cool shade throughout the dayโ€”a perfect spot to soak in the village's charm.

Cinematic Allure and Beyond ๐ŸŽฅ

Lachania's captivating scenery didn't go unnoticed, as the village square became a backdrop for scenes in the 1989 movie "High Season of forty" starring Jacqueline Bisset and Irene Papa, predominantly set in Lindos.

Leaving Lachania, venture to Mesanagros, a tiny farming community that comes to life during its main festival, held on the Sunday after Easter. Lachania serves as an excellent starting point for exploring the unspoiled beaches and countryside of Southern Rhodes, with easy access to landmarks like Lindos and Monolithos. Car rentals are available in the neighboring town of Gennadi, offering facilities like a Post Office and Pharmacy. Additionally, a regular bus connection links Gennadi to the City of Rhodes.

Explore Scattered Churches ๐Ÿ•

Discover the rich religious heritage of Lachania with small churches scattered throughout the countryside, each with its unique history and charm. Notable mentions include the Monastery of Virgin Zoodochos Pigi (18th - 19th century) in Plimmiri, Saint John the Precursor (19th century), Saint Irene (16th century, cemetery), Saint Luke (19th century), and Saint George (19th century).
