The Aegean Islands region
Rhodes is the third bigger island of Aegean. Here, the sun shines for 300 days in a year, and that's the reason that Rhodes is the island of the God Appolon (God of the Sun).
During the summer, there are a lot of relig?ous anniversaries, which are celebrated with feasts:
* 6th Aug |Transfiguration of the Saviour| - Kiotari
* 21st Aug | Feast of St. Savvas| - Gennadi
* 25-26th Jul |Feast of Sa. Paraskevi| - Kattavia
* 8th Sep |Feast of Sa. Tsambika| - Archangelos
Kattavia is the southernmost village in Rhodes located around 84km from Rhodes Town. In fact, to many Rhodians, it has always been affectionately known as “the last village”, due to its position on the island. The village originally took its name from one of the local leaders, Kattavos. It is a small attractive farming community, situated in the middle of a large plain of lush green vegetation and aromatic forests. The village is made up of old traditional houses and a handful of shops located around the well shaded village square. Some of the houses in the village, as well as a number of the buildings on its outskirts, once used for commercial purposes, show distinct Italian characteristics. These include the old silk factory, a deserted war-time prison, a derelict church with its clock tower and the impressive road opposite the church, lined with cypress trees, which leads to Aghios Pavlos Bay.
The village of Lachania is reputed to be one of the prettiest villages on the whole of Rhodes, second only to Lindos. Nestled in the southern foothills, with a mountain range as a backdrop, it has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and valleys stretching down to the quiet and unspoilt beaches of the south which are sparsely populated even in the height of summer. There are numerous beaches to choose from, some of which are known only to the locals who may tell you where they are if you befriend them.
This peaceful villageretains its traditional charm with just a handful of tavernas, a village store and traditional houses nestled in the narrow lanes, many of which have been lovingly restored and inhabited by a happy mix of foreign buyers and Greeks, all of who have a mutual respect in keeping the traditional feel of the village and for local culture and history, which has been shown in their keen interest in restoring the old village properties to their original glory.
On entering the village, you are “welcomed” by an old windmill, as if to remind you that this was, and still is, a farming community. In fact, the name Lachania comes from the Greek word "Lachaniká" meaning Vegetables.
Separated from the beach, the village lies along the main road with a sprinkling of tasty tavernas. There is a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for visitors to the village, with its traditional village houses nestled in charming little lanes. The village also has a number of amenities and shops including a small post office, a pharmacy and an ATM. There is also a regular bus service for those wanting to explore the island further. Italian architecture adds interest to the, otherwise, totally Greek atmosphere and it is well worth taking a look at the building that is now the Police Station which is a marvelous example of this.
An Olive Press Museum and natural spring water taps located around the village add to its traditional atmosphere. It is also worth visiting the byzantine churches of Ioannis Theologos and Agia Anastasia, which were built with construction material from the demolished tower of the Knights that existed in Gennadi.
Close by, in a place called Pano Vrissi, there is a cave, where archeologists have found artefacts dating back to pre-historic times.
