  Knight's former Hospital
by sandysmith

Ok next place in the old town we see is Hospital Square or Platia Nosokomiou - here stands the former Knights Hospital begun in 1440 on the site of Roman ruins. It now houses the archaelogical museum of Rhodes - yet another museum I missed out on! Its a long arched building with a bas-relief over the central arch depicting two angels bearing the coat of arms of the Order of St John. It was the first floor which housed the sick ward and could cope with 100 patients.
The museums prized possession now is the marble statue of Aphrodite.
