Our first stop will be in ELEOUSA village, originally named by Italians “Campochiaro”. Exploring the unique Italian-made settlement with abandoned buildings, you will get the feeling of the turbulent history Eleousa has gone through, and sense the charm of the inter-war period observing the elegant constructions that still patiently wait to be reconstructed.Rhodes Island | Eleousa | Manos Going Excursions and Private Tours

Your next stop will be the unique 15th Ct stone church of St. NICHOLAS FOUNDOUKLIS nestled between centuries-old olive trees, figs & plane trees. It is a beloved place for locals on weekends and church celebrations to spend time in nature with the whole family.
