Archangelos, a mountain village is one of the largest villages with a population of about 6000 people.

This is one of the villages that you will see the traditional architecture of the villages of Rhodes, untouched by time, in the narrow streets of the village. White is dominating with a strong contrast of bright coloured elements, usually windows, doors or fences... A walk within the village is a must, with your camera... the villagers are very friendly and some are happy to show you the inside of their houses, where you will be amazed by the style of decoration, a typical dodecanese island style, with plates on the walls, photos, and more ornaments.
At the village center you will find the historical church of Archangel Michael with a bell tower dating from 1845.

At the area around the village there are some unique wild horses, relatively small in size, which are protected since they are almost extinct. Large efforts are made to save the species, only a few still exist.

The village has quite a few traditional tavernas, cafeterias and a large beach called Stegna, which is about 3km from the village. There, more restaurants are by the beach. The beach is organised with umbrellas and showers, and is mainly a small pebbles and sand beach.
