Head up the hill past Tsambikos Bakery. The entrance to the path up to the Church of the Prophet Elias is well sign posted at the highest point of the Pefkos to Lindos road, just before the hairpin bends leading down to Lindos.
This mosaic near the entrance to the path up depicts Prophet Elias. Elias (or Elijah) is mentioned in several Old Testament books. He is often shown with a halo around his head. Pass through the gate near this mosaic to head upwards.
There is a car park at the foot of the path if you're travelling by car. Take a look at the mosaic before heading through the arch and up the hill
As you climb you'll be struck by the beauty of the Pefkos landscape.
Luckily today there are well made steps with rails leading up. Imagine this journey before the steps!
You don't have to climb very far before you are struck by the views over Pefkos.
As you near the top you'll realise to can now see in several directions including towards Lindos.
The church itself is typically Greek in design, and is whitewashed.
It's very peaceful but breezy up here!
On the Thursday before Easter (Maundy Thursday)there is a procession at midnight to bring the Icons from church in Lindos to here.
It's a long way back down, so take your time and take in the views and take photo's.
A simple bell adorns the front of the church, which has been recently restored.
Take a look at the rocky lanscape before heading back down the path.
When you climbed up you were facing into the hill, but on the way down as you're facing outwards, you'll continuously take in the views.
