The Rodos City is the capital of the Rhodes Island, and the administrative centre of the Dodecanese Islands.
It was founded in 408 BC and has a population of 42,000 inhabitants.
In 1988, the town was declared a World Heritage Monument by UNESCO.
Here, the nature is a good ambience for the historic objectives.
The City was for us a good experience, a place that will remain in our soul forever.
We have the wish that we make another travel to Rodos, and we are happy for that.
The old part of the city is an open-air-museum, with important buildings, which make a connection between the Greeks, Romans, and the Ottomans culture.
The Ancient Town is a collection of Knights houses (in the Knights Quarter), church, mosques, museums, squares, monuments, fortresses, and narrow streets, where the tourists can walk and stop thinking about the run of the time.
The Antique Wall that surrounds the Old City has a length of 4 kilometres and is a limit between the old and the new city of Rodos.
The famous gates of the old wall make the connection between the two parts of the city.
In the inside of the walls you can find the important Palace of the Grand Master, the Byzantine City Tower, the ruins of the Aphrodite’s Temple, and other wonderful remains of the ancient history.
The New City is situated on the area outsides the walls.
From this section of the town make part the Mandraki Harbour with its two famous columns at the entrance, the three Byzantine Windmills and the circular light tower of St. Nicholas.
The New Market (Nea Agora), the Garden of the Grand Master’s Palace, the Church of the Annunciation, the large Elefterias Boulevard with its Italian edifices, all this buildings, and many others, are part of the New City of Rodos.
The modern streets, the elegant restaurants or the traditional taverns, the comfortable hotels, the modern shops with lots of kinds for all the desires of the visitors create a new face to the city, and give to it a look of modernism with past influence.
