Close your eyes and imagine that you return at a time of honorable knights and beautiful maidens, with orders of knights that their swords blind you as they shine in the sun, as they guard the Great Master who lives protected in his impressive Castle.
This is the Medieval city of Rhodes, a time capsule back to the past! The buildings are impressive. You will notice almost immediately the different architectural style, as many cultures have left their mark and influence as they passed by. The result of this historic meeting is unique, as the "marriage" of all these different elements gives the Medieval city of Rhodes, a very distinct identity. The narrow cobbled streets of the medieval town will lead you to the most beautiful contradictory images which will surprise you . You will see for example from one side churches and to the other side mosques ... But it is precisely this peaceful coexistence of many cultures that makes the visit worth!
It is strongly recommended to take pictures all the way to the medieval city. It's like a walk down the past to a place where the spirit of the Great Master dominates over the order of the St. John knights. You walk around and you can almost hear the echo of their horseshoes!
A walk in the Medieval City of Rhodes, which was recognized in 1988 as a World Heritage City, is a unique experience one should not miss in a lifetime!
