The monastery of thari
In a distance of 2 km of Laerma, youâ€™ll find the monastery Thari.
Itâ€™s surrounded from deep green forests.
Thariâ€™s beautiful setting and itâ€™s story dating back to the tenth century, when a queen with an incurable disease stayed here. The Archangel Michael cured her telling â€Courageâ€ (Thari) you are going to get well.
The woman built this church in gratitude and itâ€™s still dedicated to the Archangel.
Thari is one of the most important Byzantine monuments on Rhodes and a place largely in Legend.
The church festival here takes place the 21 & 22 of May, the feast of Archangel Michael.
