The “bread of angels” is made in Rhodes

Rhodes has been a bridge between worlds and cultures for centuries. The Franciscan order has also been linked to the island since the beginning of its origins. In 1219, in fact, St. Francis departed from Ancona on his journey to the Holy Land and touched the Aegean islands, as he had to stop in Rhodes.

In this small part of the Custody of the Holy Land, the beating heart of pastoral life on the island, the friars are engaged in assisting those who flee wars and persecutions to Rhodes on their journey to Europe.
