Medieval Town of Rhodes
A World Heritage Monument by UNESCO
The Town has a unique architectural history as it houses many ancient ruins, byzantine churches, gothic basilicas, mosques and synagogues. It is the largest inhabited medieval city in Europe, with dozens of shops, bars and restaurants. The Medieval Moat, circling the walls, is excellent for a nice afternoon walk.
The Palace of the Grand Master
And the Knights of Saint John
Located at the highest point of the town, the Palace served as the Headquarters of the Knights of Saint John, during Medieval Times. It survived through centuries only to be destroyed around 1850. It was completely restored during the Italian Occupation of Rhodes and served as a summer royal residence. Today it is a museum and venue for cultural events.
Antiquities of Rhodes
The exhibits at the Archaeological Museum include antiquities from Rhodes and the surrounding islands. In its 16 rooms and halls it shows ceramics, statues and jewelry from the 9th Century BC till the Hellenistic Period. Its gardens are full of mosaics, and it also hosts Prehistoric antiquities and an Epigraphical Exhibition.
The harbor of ancient Rhodes
The heart of the historical center of the modern city of Rhodes, Mandraki is a unique collection of Belle-epoque and medieval buildings. The Mandraki Marina, the Three Windmills, the Nea Agora building and the Fort of Saint Nicholas are some of the historical sites to be found here. They all offer a unique view of the Palace of the Grand Magister and the surrounding parks.
And the Temple of Apollo
Crowned with the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, the Acropolis of Rhodes overlooks the entire city of Rhodes, with unique views of the city and the shores of Turkey, across the sea. The Ancient Stadium and the Odeon (theatre) from the Hellenistic Period have been well preserved and are perfect for hosting events and picnics alike.
The healing Waters
Kallithea Springs are just 9km from the city of Rhodes. A complex built to accommodate the hundreds of people from all over the Mediterranean visiting Kallithea for its healing waters, back in the 1920s. Kallithea Springs has served as a film set and major attraction throughout the years. The Monument was completely restored in 2007.
A picturesque village
One of the most photographed sites in the Aegean and possibly the most famous landmark of Rhodes, Lindos is both a historically interesting site and a top touristic destination. Its Acropolis is a unique amalgam of history as it includes ancient, byzantine and medieval buildings combined with a unique view over the Mediterranean Sea. The picturesque village, with its small alleys, white houses and crystal clear beaches, are full of surprises.
The Surfer's Heaven
A small island at the southern tip of Rhodes, Prassonisi is separated from the mainland depending on the tide, as the sea withdraws allowing access to the island by car or on foot. Prassonisi is also a surfer's heaven with high waves for the experienced athletes on its one side and smaller waves on the other, perfect for amateurs.
A colourful island
Symi is one of the smallest islands of the Dodecanese. The main village, with its neoclassical buildings, unfolds itself as a colourful amphitheatre above the main harbor. There are daily connections to Symi from Rhodes.
