  start of the moat walk
by sandysmith

Ok enough of the new town of Rhodes, time to start exploring the old. Well after managing to get past the cake cafes we headed through the first old gate we came to. We thought this would lead us to the old centre but in actual fact it was the start of the walk around the moat - some 4km around the old city. An interesting detour to see the huge defence walls that guarded the city - the moat was never filled with water - just more defensive walls to frustate any invaders!
Here's one view from the moat walk - more in the travelogue below.
