Rhodes Psinthos

Psinthos has one of the biggest squares in the Dodecanese. During the Italian occupation it was the place where the 12,000 soldiers that camped in the village would be called up – after all, that is why it is so big. Its only décor are 4-5 centenarian olive trees. Several grill houses and coffee shops are located around the square. The water flowing in the village is abundant. The biggest spring, called Fassouli, has particularly palatable water and is located further down the central square. In front of the spring a beautiful small lake has been formed, where the gizani, the rare endemic small fish of Rhodes, lives. At the other end of the square there is an Ottoman water fountain.
