Visit Rhodes Town
Rhodes Town is one of the best Medieval communities on the European continent. To maintain its preservation, it was listed as a world heritage site in 1988. It is a city with a beautiful harbor and waterfront, while the landmarks that are offered date back to the days of antiquity.
The Acropolis of Rhodes is believed to be over 2,500 years old. Although what remains is a handful of pillars and expansive grounds to explore, you can fell the history surrounding you as you explore the area. A large park, a small theater, and a stadium are part of the grounds.
The Palace of the Grand Master, a castle from the Medieval era, is built on the foundations of a 7th century citadel. The details are well-preserved throughout the grounds, with stunning mosaics, arcades, and fortifications to enjoy during a tour. It has been a museum since 1948 and will literally take your breath away.
Rhodes Town still has some of its Medieval walls in place as well. Build in the 14th century and then restored in the 15th and 16th centuries to repair damage from an earthquake and an Ottoman siege, it is one of the best examples of a fortification from that era that can be found anywhere.
You’ll have access to beaches and water sports. If you dive, then the Medieval shipwrecks just off the coast make for a unique and interesting experience.
From the time when the Colossus of Rhodes was built, Rhodes Town has been a tempting place for visitors to see. With more than 2,000 years of hospitality experience, you will find a stay here to be an incredible opportunity to explore.
