The abandoned Tsambika Monastery stands on the top of the mountain Tsambika (300 m) , in the resort Kolymbia, on the island of Rhodes , in Greece . The white pilgrimage church of Our Lady is also a part of this complex. Several legends exist about when and why was the Tsambika Monastery founded. According to one of them, a childless married couple found an icon of Virgin Mary from the 11th century on the coast. They took the icon to the mountain Tsambika. Nine months later, the woman gave birth to a child. This story spread quickly, consequently the Tsambika Monastery and a church were built on the top of the mountain Tsambika. Even today, women are still coming to the church to pray for fertility. A concrete road with a number of serpentines leads from the main road running through the resort to the saddle below the summit. The journey from the saddle continues with 300 steps, up to the Tsambika Monastery. The path is lined with beautiful conifers.
