Save Place
Ippoton 1-9, Rodos 851 00, Greece
Running through the heart of the old town of Rhodes, the Street of the Knights (Odos Ippoton) retains a distinctly medieval feel, despite extensive restorations. The street runs from the Palace of the Grand Master down to the Hospital of the...
Save Place
Yes, the name is a mouthful, but the castle complex is just as impressive as its title. This medieval castle dominates the city of Rhodes, and is one of the few examples of Gothic architecture in Greece. Having been around since the 14th century,...

Akti Sachtouri 8, Rodos 851 00, Greece
This fascinating museum is housed in what used to be the Hospital of the Knights of Saint John, a building worthy of a visit in its own right. It features many exhibits of note, including the tombs of knights from the 14th and 15th centuries,...

Save Place
Mount Filerimos, really more of a hill at only 267 meters (876 feet) high, still manages to have some of the prettiest views on the island and has been the site of a lot of local history. At the top, a Phoenician shrine stood until, in the 3rd...
Save Place
Apolloniou 11, Rodos 851 00, Greece
The emphasis on the contribution of the Knights of Saint John to the culture and history of Rhodes Town makes it easy to forget that Rhodes was under Ottoman rule for hundreds of years. Of the remaining treasures of the Ottoman era, the most...
Save Place
Liha, Lindos 851 07, Greece
Lindos looks exactly how you'd hope a Greek island village would. Small houses crowd each other along a labyrinth of alleyways that climb uphill. From a distance, the houses look like a haphazard stack of whitewashed cubes. Below the village,...
