This mountain village, surrounded by vineyards known, is considered the wine capital of Rhodes. It owes its fame to the grape variety "Athiri" which thrives on small terraced hillsides west of Atavyros and whose culture dates back to antiquity. Attempts to cultivate this variety outside Rhodes have all failed. The village is also famous for its fruit, olive groves and tobacco plantations.
