Rhodes Old Medieval Town, Rhodes When you approach the walls of Medieval Old Town of Rhodes you are about to enter the oldest inhabited medieval city in Europe. It's a thrill to behold. Best to know one thing from the start about the Old Town of Rhodes: It's not laid out on a grid - not even close. In the Medieval - Old - Town of Rhodes one may for sure enjoy one of the most interesting walks on the island. Do not let the "medieval" mislead you: rather than a ruined, deserted setting, you will be pleasantly surprised to wander through an intricate network of busy little commercial streets delightfully alternating with quiet alleys, in what is a very much alive town consistently dwelt in over the last two thousand years!  No wonder, therefore, that for some time now, the Medieval Quarter of Rhodes - the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe - forms part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage network! This is a bustling neighborhood of some 6000 people, who live and work in the same buildings in which the Knights of St. John dwelt, six centuries ago. An emotion certain to remain forever alive on one’s memory! Medieval buildings, mosques, traditional fountains, oriental motifs, Byzantine and Gothic churches, shops and cafeterias are scattered throughout the Old Town of Rhodes, all blending together to create a unique and picturesque whole. There are roughly 200 streets or alleys - some of them bearing no name! Getting “lost” here is not a defeat; it's an opportunity. Whenever you feel the need to find your bearings, you may ask for "Sokratous" street, which is the closest the Medieval City comes to having a main street. The highlights - what to see in the Old Town of Rhodes The Palace of the Grand Master, reinstated by the Italians in 1940 after almost a century of abandonment (the building had been destroyed as a result of an explosion in a forgotten powder store in its basement, in 1856), stands out because of its imposing entrance and exquisitely well-preserved towers and battlements. The interiors of the buildings, decorated with priceless ornamental objects, are equally impressive.   The Archaeological Museum is housed in the Gothic building of the Great Hospital of the Knights and preserves masterpieces of art on Rhodes, finds from ancient lalysos and Kamiros and mosaic paintings from the city of Rhodes. The Knight's Street, the imposing street that leads to the Palace of the Grand Master, keeps alive the accommodations of the "language" of the Order of Knights. It is worth visiting the Panagia tou Kastrou, the Panagia tou Bourgkou, the clocktower, the synagogue and the mosques of the Suleyman and Recep Pasha. The medieval city of Rhodes is one of the few remaining medieval cities in the world that is still inhabited and alive. Even being the highest elevation of the Old Town of Rhodes, the clock tower (Roloi), is hardly noticeable at first glance. The Hospice of St. Catherine was built in 1391-92, under grand master Heredia, by the Italian Domenico d'Allemagna, admiral of the Order of the Knights of St. John (Knights Hospitaller). The founder was an important personage, disposing of considerable means.

Aktaion, Rhodes A two-storeyd building with flat roof and an arcade looking towards the road by the sea. The walls are built in the typical, local isodomic masonry. Very interesting is the structure of the interior, visible in the plans of the building. Very interesting is the structure of the interior, visible in the plans of the building.  It was built in the first period of the italian occupation (1925) and in its first phase it was richly decorated in a combination of the oriental and gothic styles. From 1936 onwards, when De Vecchi was the govenror, all the decorative elements were removed so that the facade was in accordance with the official architectural style of the state (Fascist Style). The building was called "Circolo Italia" and was used as a meeting place by the italian officers. Today it has been transformed into a coffee and pastry shop.

Mandraki Harbor Mandraki is one of the three harbors in Rhodes. It is famous, because it is believed that the great statue of Colossus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, once stood at the harbor entrance. Today the deer sculptures at the entrance, the St. Nicholas Fortress and a number of medieval windmills create a charming view of the harbor. Many boat trips to other nearby islands leave from here. Discover this beautiful historical harbor on this tour. 1) Evangelismos Church Evangelismos Church (also called The Church of the Annunciation) is located next to Mandraki Harbor. It was built in 1925 by the Italians, as Rhodes was an Italian city at that time. The church is a magnificent example of Gothic architecture. It is similar in design to St. John Church located in Old Town. This church is also dedicated to St. John. The interior is decorated with murals by Fotis Kontoglou. 2) Main Post Office The Main Post Office in Rhodes is a stunning building located in Liberty Square, known locally as Plateia Eleftherias, in the modern city. It may not be one of the oldest constructions on the island, but its impressive Renaissance Eclecticism architectural style is nonetheless beautiful and worthwhile visiting. The Main Post Office was built during the first years of the Italian reign over the island, between 1912 and 1943. The post office was designed by Italian architect Florestano di Fausto. It has always maintained its function as the principal post office on the island, initially, under the Italian and, more recently, under the Greek postal service. The façade is highly stylized and features impressive carvings and engravings into the local poros stone. Above the grand entrance there is an emblem of the god of sun and there are entrances to either side. The Main Post Office, like many of the buildings constructed during Italian sovereignty, were deliberately opulent in order to emphasize the superiority of the Italian reign, as well as to attract tourists to the new part of the city of Rhodes. The Main Post Office is open daily between 8:30am and 2:30pm. 3) New Market Hall New Market Hall is located opposite Mandraki Harbor. It is a long, white building with a magnificent entrance. The ground floor of the market houses a number of cafes and bars, and there are an array of taverns, shops and cafes located in the open area. Tourists like shopping at this market, as there are a lot of jewelry and gift shops here. 4) Windmills of Mandraki (must see) The Windmills of Mandraki are located on the wave breaker of Mandraki Harbor in Rhodes. These medieval windmills were used to ground the grain that came from the commercial ships docking in the harbor. It is believed that there were once 13 or 14 windmills, but most of them have disintegrated over time. Three of these beautiful structures have been renovated and stand as majestic reminders of times past. 5) Mandraki Harbour Mandraki Harbour is the main harbor of Rhodes. Its entrance is described as the place where the Colossus of Rhodes was standing. Mandraki Harbour still remains the harbour that can offer trips on yachts and sailboats around the Town of Rhodes or other islands that are near Rhodes. 6) St. Nicholas Fortress The imposing St. Nicholas Fortress is located in the Rhodes Old City looking out over Mandraki Harbor. In ancient times Mandraki Harbor was a military space and in the 15th century a guard tower was constructed there on the orders of Grand Master Raimondo Zacosta. Following the first siege, the tower was fortified. A bastion was added by Grand Master d’Aubusson and the newly formed fortress was named after the chapel inside it. It was largely thanks to the fortress that the Knights Hospitaller were able to fend off attacks from the Turks for so many years. Major sieges by the Turks were mounted in 1480 and 1522-23. The initial attack was thwarted, but the Turks ended up seizing power in 1522 and the Knights were forced to leave Rhodes. When the fortress was built, it took into account the Ottoman use of cannons and other siege weaponry and its thick walls were impermeable for many years. Indeed considering their age, they are in excellent condition to this day. The fortress is hugely popular with visitors these days and it has been well preserved. You can walk along the path of the former moat, which has been dried out and provides a scenic, tree lined walking path. 7) Lighthouse of St. Nicholas Fortress The Lighthouse is located at the St. Nicholas Fortress in Mandraki Harbor. It dates back to 1863, during the Ottoman period. The Lighthouse was reactivated in 2007. It is a round, unpainted, white stone tower that displays two white flashes every twelve seconds, lighting the way for incoming ships. 8) Rhodian Deer Statues Sculptures of Rhodian Deer, a stag and a doe, stand on slim columns on either side of the Mandraki Harbor entrance. It is believed that the statue of Colossus once stood here. Today these two charming Rhodian deer sculptures serve as the guardians of the harbor. 9) Colossus of Rhodes (must see) The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the Greek god Helios, erected in the city of Rhodes by Chares of Lindos between 292 and 280 BC. It is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Before its destruction, the Colossus of Rhodes stood over 30 meters (107 ft) high, making it one of the tallest statues of the ancient world. Ancient accounts describe the structure as being built with iron tie bars to which brass plates were fixed to form the skin. The interior of the structure, which stood on a 15-meter- (50-foot-) high white marble pedestal near the Mandraki Harbor entrance, was then filled with stone blocks as construction progressed. The statue stood for only 56 years until Rhodes was hit by an earthquake in 226 BC. The statue snapped at the knees and fell over onto land. Ptolemy III offered to pay for the reconstruction of the statue, but the Oracle of Delphi made the Rhodians afraid that they had offended Helios, and they declined to rebuild it.

Medieval Moat, Rhodes Circumscribing the Medieval City from land, the Moat runs along some 2.5 km. Its purpose was to keep enemies and their siege gear off the main fortification system of the walls and bastions. The Rhodian Moat has never been submerged in water; rather, it relied on its considerable depth – considerable enough to have helped surface more ancient vestiges of urban life, such as irrigation ducts, sewers etc. With its bloody past way behind, the Moat in present day plays host to a multitude of activities by people those who come here for sport and exercise or a simple stroll, pet on leash. More often than note, the area is filled with the notes of musical shows and thespian events hosted on selected sites along it.

Filerimos, Rhodes Mt. Filerimos (Philerimos, Φιλέρημος in Greek), is situated about 15km from Rhodes Town, on a hill 267m. high, also located near the village of Trianta, and stands on the same site as the Doric city of Ialysos in ancient times. Filerimos in Rhodes is situated near the village of Trianta, standing on the very site where the Doric city of Ialyssos once flourished. When the Dorians arrived around 1100 BC, Ialyssos became member of the alliance known as the Dorian Hexapolis. Archaeologists came across the necropolis of ancient Ialisos between Trianta and Filerimos. In 1876 excavations, brought to light Mycenaean pottery, a Doric foundation and a Hellenistic temple of Athena Polias proof of the prosperity of the city down to the time when Rhodes city was founded in 408 BC. In the middle age the Knights of St. John used the site of Ialissos. Later it passed on to the Ottomans and finally to the Italians. Remnants of these periods and vestiges of the long succession of conquerors can still be seen. On the way up the ancient road to the Acropolis in Filerimos, one comes across the foundations of the temple of Zeus and Athena. On top, there stands beautiful church, dedicated to Holy Mary. This Monastery was destroyed during the Ottoman period and rebuilt by the Italians who had Capuchin monks establish on the premises. It is to them that this lovely complex owes the lovely walkways and quite corridors. The monks also contrived an exquisite liquor recipe, based on a mixture of seven, locally-found herbs (hence its name of «Sette Erbe» = Seven Herbs) still available at the local canteen.

Filerimos, Rhodes Mt. Filerimos (Philerimos, Φιλέρημος in Greek), is situated about 15km from Rhodes Town, on a hill 267m. high, also located near the village of Trianta, and stands on the same site as the Doric city of Ialysos in ancient times. Filerimos in Rhodes is situated near the village of Trianta, standing on the very site where the Doric city of Ialyssos once flourished. When the Dorians arrived around 1100 BC, Ialyssos became member of the alliance known as the Dorian Hexapolis. Archaeologists came across the necropolis of ancient Ialisos between Trianta and Filerimos. In 1876 excavations, brought to light Mycenaean pottery, a Doric foundation and a Hellenistic temple of Athena Polias proof of the prosperity of the city down to the time when Rhodes city was founded in 408 BC. In the middle age the Knights of St. John used the site of Ialissos. Later it passed on to the Ottomans and finally to the Italians. Remnants of these periods and vestiges of the long succession of conquerors can still be seen. On the way up the ancient road to the Acropolis in Filerimos, one comes across the foundations of the temple of Zeus and Athena. On top, there stands beautiful church, dedicated to Holy Mary. This Monastery was destroyed during the Ottoman period and rebuilt by the Italians who had Capuchin monks establish on the premises. It is to them that this lovely complex owes the lovely walkways and quite corridors. The monks also contrived an exquisite liquor recipe, based on a mixture of seven, locally-found herbs (hence its name of «Sette Erbe» = Seven Herbs) still available at the local canteen.
A Dreamy Place Full of Butterflies A unique nature reserve is to be found inland on Rhodes Island, “Butterfly Valley” or in Greek “Petaloudes Valley”. It sounds like a dreamy place and truly is! It is one of the most famous attractions of Rhodes that is certainly worth a visit. Only 10 km from the airport and 25 km from the town of Rhodes, you can visit the famous Valley of the Butterflies. This is a habitat with dense flora, breathtaking natural beauty, harmonious structures of bridges with the environment, paved paths, ponds, small inexhaustible waterfalls, serene atmosphere and a unique experience for the visitors. The only sound the visitors can hear there is the chirping of the cicadas and the murmuring of the cool water. An excellent place for families with children who wish to enjoy the beauties of nature and examine the life cycle of butterflies as part of their summer holiday. Unique Landscape home_zoo_sep2 Apart from its aesthetic value, it is also the site of the only natural forest of Liquidambar orientalis or in Greek “Zitia” (Oriental Sweetgum trees) in Europe, and a resting point for the Panaxia Quadripunctaria (Jersey tiger), a nocturnal moth. These trees secrete special substances that attract the butterflies making the valley a breeding place for the butterfly Panaxia Quadripunctaria. This is a rare habitat that hosts the butterfly Panaxia Quadripunctaria, which makes its appearance in this unique natural park in the period from May to late September. Visitors can witness a spectacular phenomenon which occurs only rarely in nature. Huge numbers of butterflies congregate in this small valley during the final stage of their life cycle. Every year, at the end of the wet season (May), thousands of butterflies attracted by the scent of the Oriental Sweetgum trees cover the entire landscape. They are actually adult insects that follow the waterways and migrate here to reproduce (females leave for other suitable areas to lay their eggs in the early fall) due to the high humidity of the area. At the time of visiting, the butterflies sleep on the shady sides of logs of trees or around the roots. The sight of the colony itself is magical but if the butterflies are awake they form a cloud, which is very impressive as it reveals the orange color of their feathers. Shhhhhhhhhhhh..... home_zoo_sep2 Butterflies are resting here…The moths cannot eat during this final phase of their life cycle, so they rest here to conserve energy. Any loud noise would force them to fly away, thereby consuming valuable energy. Observe them as they “sleep” well-camouflaged in black and yellow; in flight their cherry-red overwings flash. The butterfly is brown-black with yellowish spots. This species of butterflies belongs to the family of moths and for this reason, the butterflies stay still covering the trunks of trees and rocks during the day, while they fly around at night. The unpleasant truth is that the number of butterflies is increasingly reduced due to the impact of tourism on their natural environment. This is mainly due to the fact that a number of visitors whistle or clap their hands in order to see the butterflies fly. But the clapping and whistling produce ultrasonic sounds similar to those of bats. The butterflies feel threatened and try to escape frightened. Many of them die from shock or from depletion in their attempt to escape or even by crashing on rocks and trees. It is also important for them to stay still on the trees because they must keep their strength for their long journey in September, so try to avoid any hassling during your visit.

Ancient Camiros, Rhodes The ancient city was built on three levels. At the top of the hill was the acropolis, with the temple complex of Athena Kameiras and the stoa. A covered reservoir having a capacity of 600 cubic meters of water—enough for up to 400 families—was constructed about the sixth century BC. Later, the stoa was built over the reservoir. The stoa consisted of two rows of Doric columns with rooms for shops or lodgings in the rear. The main settlement was on the middle terrace, consisting of a grid of parallel streets and residential blocks. On the lower terrace are found a Doric temple, probably to Apollo; the Fountain House, with the Agora in front of it; and Peribolos of the Altars, which contained dedications to various deities. During the prehistoric period the area was inhabited by Mycenaean Greeks. The city itself was founded by the Dorians. The temple foundations were begun at least as early as the eighth century BC. The earthquake of 226 BC destroyed the city and the temple. The earthquake of 142 AD destroyed the city for the second time.[1] The Acropolis was excavated by Alfred Biliotti and Auguste Salzmann between 1852 and 1864. Many of the finds from their digs are now kept in the British Museum in London.[2] In 1928 the Italian Archaeological School began a systematic excavation of the area together with restoration work which continued until the end of the Second World War. On the north-western shore of Rhodes, close To the promontory of Agios Minas (the Ancient Mylantio) lies the third of The island's ancient cities - Kamiros. Kamiros was one of the three large Doric cities of the island, which united with Ialysos and Lindos in the 5th century B.C. to create the powerful city - state of Rhodes. Although it was established by the Dorians, it seems like the first inhabitants of the area must have been Achaeans, as the ruins of an ancient Mycenaean necropolis close to the village of Kalovarda reveal. Kameiros was basically an agricultural society which produced oil, wine and figs. During the city's golden era of the 6th century, it was the first Rhodian city to cut its own coins. Kameiros (Kamiros) has been often compared to Pompeii, something which is not correct since Kamiros did not fall into decline because of a natural disaster. Its decline, like the decline of Ialysos, was the result of the gradual abandonment by its residents, who decided to move to the city of Rhodes, which as mentioned above, was established in 408 B.C. In 1929 archaeologists localized the ruins of the ancient city, and the excavations which brought it back to life continued till the end of World War II. The motive to start the excavations was the accidental discovery of some ancient graves, as well as the name of the area, which was Kameiros (Kamiros), and which had been reforested by the time. The findings which had been revealed by the excavations, which are very rich and important, have been taken to the British Museum and the Louvre. We hope that some day these archaeological treasures will be given back in order to be exposed to the public by the archaeological museum of Rhodes. The sanctuary of Athena The sanctuary of Athena existed on the acropolis of Kamiros (Kameiros) from the ninth century BC. All that has survived of the earliest phase are the deposits, in which the numerous votive offerings were deposited, probably during a rebuilding phase during the sixth century BC. It was perhaps at this time that the first temple of Athena was built. The deposits consisted of a rectangular pit of great depth, as well as small cavities in the rock in the where the Hellenistic temple was later built. Large-scale building works were carried out in the sanctuary during Hellenistic times, perhaps after the earthquake of 227 BC. Its architectural planning was based on the terraced arrangement which was popular in the Hellenistic period and is also encountered in the sanctuary of Lindos. On the lowest terrace at the end of the main street, stood a small altar, from which ramps led to the ends of the second trace, where a stoa in the Doric order with a wide esplanade front of it was located. The stoa was 204 m. long and was one of the largest in the ancient world. At its rear a row of rooms served the needs of the sanctuary. In the middle of the stoa the rooms were interrupted by a staircase leading up to the highest terrace, on which stood the temple of Athena in the inner sacred precinct or temenos.

Monolithos Castle, Rhodes The castle of Monolithos was built on the foundations of another, older castle, and lies about 236m high on an amazingly difficult natural terrain, which made its construction even more challenging, near the village of Monolithos. Under the orders of Grand Master D’Aubusson, and after having overcome the difficulties of transporting the building materials needed for its erection on the rocky outcrop, the castle of Monolithos was finally built, constituting one of the most important fortifications of Rhodes, due to its strategic location that allowed a clear view of the Mediterranean. The extremely challenging accessibility route and position also made it very difficult for enemies, including Ottomans, to seize the castle, forcing them to retrieve empty-handed. Today only some external parts of the fortifications remain, but they are in a quite well reserved condition. But what also makes it worth embarking on an arduous attempt to climb the steep hill, are the magnificent churches, the two 15th century chapels of St. Panteleimon and St. George and the breathtaking view of the mountain of Akramytis, the village of Monolithos right below it, the island Halki and of course the vast Aegean Sea. Monolithos Castle Location: The castle of Monolithos is a 3km drive from the village of Monolithos. As soon as you reach the rocky outcrop, then you need to continue your adventure on foot, following the steep footpath leading to the castle. From the city of Rhodes the distance is 69.5km.

Lindos, Rhodes The streets of Lindos are a maze of continuous buildings, chiefly with interior courtyards. Most of the houses have flat roofs, but some variety of types can be seen among the buildings that have not been affected by time and changes of use and shape. The material used in their construction is either the local quarried limestone (porolithos) or field stones which have been plastered and whitewashed. Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on the island of Rhodes. At the first sight, everyone inevitably steps on the brake pedal, to admire the dramatic natural landscape which is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the town built in a more recent past. The view is astonishing. Over the calm waters of a wide, rocky bay, white flat-roofed houses rise up a slope from a golden, schallow, sandy beach, forming a light belt around the north side of the castle hill. The mighty castle of the Acropolis of Lindos is enthroned above. At closer look, you can see behind the warlike walls the pillars of a very dainty little temple, which was once dedicated to the goddess Athena Lindia. 5000 years of history and human life are waiting be be explored here - a whole day and evening may not be enough! If you would like to swim, the most promising place is at the St. Paulis bay, at the back of the Acropolis. This is where apostle Paul once stepped on Rhodian soil. From there you can see the castle and temple from a whole different angle You will find the most important archaeological monuments within the enclave of the Citadel, although quite a number of interesting remains are scattered at various points within the town and in its immediacies. A road leads high up to the Acropolis. The medieval walls are the first ruins you will encounter - fortifications built by the Crusaders (early 14th century) on the remains of earlier defenses, both Byzantine and ancient. There are also some towers along the medieval walls, which follow the natural contours of the high ground. Architecture in Lindos The houses of Lindos impress with their traditional architecture and decoration.

The wooded mountain of Profitis Ilias rises to a height of 798 m and there are magnificent views from the top. The area is also offered for nice scenic walks. Profitis Ilias. Profitis Ilias is a 641 meter (2,100 foot) high mountain southwest of Rhodes town, not far from Kamiros. It is a lovely wooded mountain with some very interesting attractions. Coming from Kolymbia and Epta Piges (Seven Springs) towards the village of Eleousa, you’ll first see the beautiful monastery of Aghios Nektarios. There is plenty of drinkable water throughout the area. Before the church stands an ancient, huge, famous plane tree that is hollow on the inside, just like a room. In the village of Eleousa you will be surprised by a large, mysterious derelict building. In the period around the World War II, when Rhodes was still in Italian hands, the Italians built a hospital here. Later, when the Italians left, it was a sanatorium for the chronically ill. However, since the seventies the sanatorium has been closed and when you drive along Eleousa today, at the main square, opposite the main church of Agia Eleousa, you will see this giant ghost building. Today Profitis Ilias is a forested enclave with a mix of mainly Calabrian pines, cedars and oaks. In the 1930's, the Italian occupiers of the island set about transforming the forsted ridge of the mountain into a semi-world park, attracted perhaps by the sub-Alpine nature of the terrain. The runis and remains of this era are a telling comment on the fate of fascist ambition. The road that cliimbs the mountain's wooded slopes from Salakos in the west is a serpentine delight. If you approach from Eleousa in the east, you pass the charming little Byzantine church of Agios Nikolaos fountoukli in its peaceful roadside setting. the church contains some fine, if faded, medieval frescoes. Both approaches lead eventually to a junction, high amidst the pines, but below the true summit. here stands the Italian era, chalet0style hotel Elafos and its annexe, Elafina which are currently being reinnovated to 5 Start Hotels. Alongside is the church of Profitis ilias. When you drive on towards Profitis Ilias, you will encounter two very interesting sights; the large round fountain and the church of Aghios Ioannis (St. John) Foundoukli constructed in the 15th century. A few kilometers away is the summit of Mount Profitis Ilias. Here you will be surprised by the Austrian-like scenes. There are two large buildings that are more reminiscent of Austria and Switzerland than Greece. One building is called Elafos, this is actually a hotel built in the year 1929, the other is named Elafina (1932). When last we were there (summer 2015), Elafina had been restored. Captive deer (elafia) inhabit the area. On the square near this building there is plenty of parking and there is also a nice taverna named Elafaki. One hundred meters from the taverna Elafaki, there is a stone staircase-which takes you up to the highest point of the mountain. Here too you will encounter a mysterious derelict and dilapidated building and a Catholic church. This building was the Cottage of the Italian dictator Mussolini used in the period around World War II. You can walk into the building and the church, but be careful because both buildings are in very poor condition.

Tsambika Monastery, Rhodes The old monastery of Tsambika is built on top of a hill with gorgeous view to the sea and the surrounding area, offering breathtaking views over the beaches of Tsambika and Kolymbia. The road to Tsampika monastery turns off the main road, some meters before the turn to Tsambika beach. The road leads half of the way up on the hill. From this point on, you will have to walk up the hill, following the 350 steps. On the top of the hill you will find the tiny, Byzantine church, dedicated to the Virgin. It's perched at an altitude of some 240 m featuring some truly spectacular views on the coast, both north over Kolymbia and south over Tsambika beach and all the way to Lindos, which makes the strenuous effort uphill definitely worth a try! The legend has it that women facing difficulties in conceiving should climb the hill barefooted to pray to the Virgin for fertility and that most of the times, faith is compensated and wishes fulfilled. If so, the male child to be born to such mother is to be named «Tsampikos» whereas the girl «Tsampika». For those still skeptical on the veracity of this lore, we recommend that you experiment by merely calling the name in a busy street anywhere on the island: just count the number of heads turning to you for cognizance! Tsampikoses and Tsampikas have their name’s day on the 7th of September.

The road to Tsampika monastery turns off the main road, some meters before the turn to Tsambika beach. The road leads half of the way up on the hill. From this point on, you will have to walk up the hill, following the 350 steps. On the top of the hill you will find the tiny, Byzantine church, dedicated to the Virgin. It's perched at an altitude of some 240 m featuring some truly spectacular views on the coast, both north over Kolymbia and south over Tsambika beach and all the way to Lindos, which makes the strenuous effort uphill definitely worth a try! The legend has it that women facing difficulties in conceiving should climb the hill barefooted to pray to the Virgin for fertility and that most of the times, faith is compensated and wishes fulfilled. If so, the male child to be born to such mother is to be named «Tsampikos» whereas the girl «Tsampika». For those still skeptical on the veracity of this lore, we recommend that you experiment by merely calling the name in a busy street anywhere on the island: just count the number of heads turning to you for cognizance! Tsampikoses and Tsampikas have their name’s day on the 7th of September.
Rodini Park, Rhodes Rodini Park was probably the first landscaped park in the world. It was still popular with the Romans some years later and they left a bit of an aqueduct here. The park has been arranged along a natural stream. This is an ideal environment for the peacocks which live and breed freely in the park. It's a pleasure to come here, to get a respite from the heat of the day. Enjoy the cool walkway leading along the bank of the stream. Rodini Park is rich in flora, with perennial plane trees, oleanders, high-sky pines, springs with water gushing through the rocks. It offers areas for relaxation, a playground, park benches and provides its guests a feeling of peace and tranquility. A walk of about 10 minutes will bring you to a tomb carved into the rock. The tomb, dating from the Hellenist period and featuring a decoration of 21 Doric half-pillars - is known as the tomb of the Ptolemies. The tomb of the Ptolemies is an important, probably 2nd century bc, Hellenistic funerary monument with a pedimented doorway and stuccoed façade. This is in effect an outcrop of natural rock fashioned into a 30m square block. Its north side has been dressed with a row of carved, engaged pilasters which have been plastered and were once coloured, and which stand as if on a stepped crepis

Kallithea (Kalithea), Rhodes Kallithea (Kalithea) beach is one of the most popular among the locals. It is composed of many small creeks covered with pine-trees.

The beaches are well organized and offer cafes, canteens, restaurants, and umbrellas. The tiny inlets and coves with their sculptured rocks and caves offer endless exploratory promise to all youngsters, and for the more adventurous, daily underwater diving trips can be arranged. Water sports are on offer too, but should you wish to lie back and relax, a more perfect spot would be hard to find. Kallithea Spa Kallithea Spa was built in 1920 by the Italians during their rule of the island. It is said that Hippocrates, father of all physicians, drank and recommended the healing qualities of Kallithea waters, and that was back in 460BC. There were many followers of this type of healing and the waters are said to have helped those with stomach troubles. Today the domed pavilions and archways have been renovated and although the waters have long-since dried up, many people visit the area for its crystal clear sea waters and magical scenery. A restaurants & cafes are available and inside the rotunda an art gallery is organized by the local Municipality. Wedding receptions are often hosted here just as there are conferences and events. Walking through the gardens one can touch and smell the various herbs and spices planted along the paths, giving off a particularly strong aroma.

Then, by following the signs guiding you to the various small eating places in the area, you will reach a series of pine-covered bays and coves, with stone pools and rocks you can dive from (be careful: the sea is deep here, you need to be a good swimmer). This is the place the locals refer to when they say "let's go for a swim at Kallithea". Each of the little coves has sun beds for hire, and its own small restaurant, which usually lends its name to the beach itself.

Anthony Quinn Bay, Rhodes The beach at Anthony Quinn bay is one of the most beautiful beaches on Rhodes. The waters owe their deep emerald colour to the lush green vegetation which surrounds the beach. Natural stone surfaces ideal for reclining under the sun, pine trees reaching down to the water's edge, emerald green water - Anthony Quinn certainly showed impeccable taste when he fell in love with its miniature bay. The beach is known today by the actor's name since he bought this part of the island when filming "The Guns of Navarone" here. Anthony Quinn Bay is situated on the east coast of Rhodes, about four kilometres south of Faliraki. The waters owe their deep emerald colour to the lush green vegetation which surrounds the beach. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on Rhodes. It's mostly popular with young people - especially Italians - since the sharp rocks both in and out of the water are not ideal for families with young children or elderly people. Because of it's small size, the beach gets fairly crowded during July and August. The finest spot is the rock right in the centre of the beach, with room for just a few sun beds. At the top of the rocks you will find a canteen. The crystal clear water and gorgeous underwater scenery also makes Anthony Quinn bay one of the best areas in Rhodes for snorkeling.

Above the bright white fine sand, rises the steep 240m high rock, on which a white chapel is enthroned. A steep road and then an equally steep stairway lead up. This chapel, the "Kyra Panagia Tsambika" (Tsambika Monastery), has always been a pilgrimage destination for women who are having difficulties conceiving.

Kiotari Beach, Rhodes Impressive and vast, Kiotari beach has grown over the last years with large, luxury hotels, well-run restaurants and tavernas, and a shopping center with more or less anything you need. Here you will find large, luxury hotels, a few well-run restaurants and tavernas, a shopping centre with more or less anything you need (mini markets, bakeries, patisseries and cash machines) - these are the main features of what is in fact the most contemporary and stylish resort on Rhodes. Kiotari has grown up over the last ten years along an impressive, vast beach, but does not suffer from the same tourist saturation which has affected some of the other traditional beach resorts of Rhodes. You will find no real community here, just shops and hotels, many of which operate the all-inclusive system, and thus their guests spend almost the whole of their days within the hotel's facilities and on their private beaches. Most of the holidaymakers are families or couples, looking for peace and quiet by the sea, although there are a number of local people who come down on summer weekends as well. Even if you are not staying here it is worth stopping for a swim on the superb beach with its damp sand.

The castle in Haraki In Byzantine times, in 1306 to be more specific, the fortress overlooking the bay of Haraki was conquered by the Knights of St. John. In 1470 Grand Master Giovanni Battista degli Orsini had the fortress modernized. The castle was mainly used as a prison for prisoners of war and as a place of exile for Knights who had been found guilty of breaking the law. In addition, it protected the numerous sugar cane plantations, whose harvests were processed in a sugar refinery immediately below the castle. Archaeologists have uncovered minor traces of it. Today there is little left of the fortress overlooking Haraki. From the north side of the hill there is a beautiful view over the fertile land around Malona and Massari, the beach of Kalathos, as well as over the beach of Agathi, and of course Haraki bay at its feet.

Saint Paul's bay, Lindos Despite its diminutive size, Saint Paul’s Bay is one of the most popular beaches on the Greek island of Rhodes. Located on the edge of the historic village of Lindos, St Paul’s Bay is almost entirely enclosed by rocks on all sides with just the smallest of gaps for boats to come in and out of. This spectacular setting is further enhanced by a small, typical Greek Orthodox chapel down in the cove and the ruins of the ancient Acropolis of Lindos set overlooking the cove. There are two little stretches of sand on either side of the bay, both are equally lovely so it makes little difference which you choose. The clear blue water here gets very warm as it is sheltered and shallow, not to mention the air temperature can reach 40°C (104°F) in the summer. With such safe surroundings this little bay is ideal for swimming and snorkelling; there are plenty of fish to be spotted amongst the rocks too. Surrounding the cove are a few tavernas where you can grab a bite to eat. If you fancy a little more choice the village of Lindos is only a couple of minutes walk. As well as plenty of bars and restaurants you will find picture-postcard cobbled streets lined with whitewashed houses along with the odd donkey - yep, not a lot as changed here! Owing to its beautiful surroundings and the chapel down in the cove St Paul’s Bay is a popular spot for weddings with both locals and tourists. So if you fancy a big fat Greek wedding…
