The Grand Master Palace is a very imposing construction situated in the old wing of the Rhodes City.
The Castle is placed on a huge named Lower Acropolis, in the middle of the city.
The construction lies on a surface of around 6000 square metres and is a real master work of architecture.
The construction of the palace began in the 14th century by the knights? time, but it was destroyed by the earthquake (1480-1481) and by the Ottomans occupation in 1522.
The imposing new construction of the castle was rebuilt in the time period 1937-1940, under the Italians.
The architect that made the planes for the new construction was Vittorio Mesturino.
The castle is to be seeing in the centre of the city, as an imposing edifice situated not far from the Mandraki Harbour.
