The Ancient City of Rhodes

Prenota un hotel a Rodi

Rhodes has been inhabited for over 2400 years. The old city was built in 408 BC. The medieval part of the city is the city of the Knights of St. John, who became the Knights of Rhodes when they fled here in the fourteenth century, before the second and final move to Malta. They built it on the ruins of the ancient city and it is surrounded by imposing walls that definitely separate it from the new part of the city.

It is worth getting lost, strolling around the maze of alleys that are just behind the tourist centre of Sokratous or Orpheus, the road of restaurants with menus in six languages. You will be fascinated by going around the narrow streets of the medieval town and the Turkish quarter with mosques and delightful markets that exhibit local products.

Through an old door, you see a garden full of lemons; further, the dark and small shop of a blacksmith; soon after, one block left to weeds, plants with figs and climbing campanulas. But there are also mosques, Byzantine churches and magnificent palaces.
