On the east coasr of Rhodes we found this remote monastery - a short detour of the main road down to Prasonisi. Bit of a stark white building is the monastery of Zoodohos Pigi (source of life).
It dates from teh 1840's and is built over the ruins of an early Christian church. Notice the classical colums with Corinthinthian capitals in the exterior ogf the monaastery. Rhodes has countless monasteries and chapels - every few miles there seems to be a brown sign indicatring one.
