Rhodes Siana

Siana is a small village nestled on the slopes of Mount Akramytis (825m) and famous for the production of honey and souma, which are sold on stalls in the village shops. In August, the Honey and Souma Festival is held on the square, with honey sweets (melekouni, loukoumades (fried balls of dough), pancakes, plenty of souma, meze (tidbits), bands and dancing groups. For the church clock on the square, time has stopped. Its hands are painted and constantly point at 10 to 7. The locals say that this was the time when the building of the church started and it was the same time, after many years, when it ended.
