An alluring outdoor museum with multi-ethnic touches
Throughout history, Rhodes has been inhabited already during the prehistoric era as findings and records show. During the 6th century BC, the island consisted of 3 mighty city-states, Lindos, Ialysos and Kamiros, and each had its own Acropolis as well as a noteworthy fleet. The 3 states later merged and formed the even mightier Rhodes state, a cultural, religious and economic hub that thrived for centuries.
Numerous conquerors tried to seize Rhodes and indeed some, such as the Romans, the Ptolemies and the Ottomans, managed to conquer it for a while but the ones that truly formed the island’s character were the Knights of the Order of Saint John.
Therefore, the Medieval Era of Rhodes is evident till this day on buildings, facilities and other structures. The monumental medieval city of the Knights is one of Europe’s best-preserved Old Towns, and a UNESCO World Heritage site, a colorful mosaic where you will find Hebrew synagogues, Muslim mosques and Christian churches, discover a lot of quaint little shops and boutiques, and also enjoy some delicious gelati and roof-top dinners under the stars.
The modern city of Rhodes is also an architectural wonder, as it manages to beautifully combine Italian, Greek, Ottoman and Venetian architecture in a breathtaking cosmopolitan scenery. Imposing buildings that face the endless blue sea create a majestic view ideal for morning shopping, afternoon strolls and evening drinks.
