Rhodes Tharri monastery in Laerma

According to tradition, a sick princess from Morocco had a vision of the Archangel Michael in her sleep and he told her “tharrei” (have courage!). She became well and built the monastery, in which monks still live today. Its temple is known for the 13th-century religious paintings (in the Holy Sanctuary and on the dome) and for the ornate wooden carved iconostasis from 1756. In the Tharri monastery you can find a shop, where the monks sell bottled wine and ouzo they produce themselves.
