Rhodes Old Town is a UNESCO world heritage site,and the oldest continuously inhabited medival town in Europe.A massive wall that was built by the Knights of Saint John encloses the Old Town and you can gain entrance by way of several gates.One you enter the walled city through'Liberty Gate'you will find yourself in 'Simis Square'surrounded by history,the fenced ruins of the Ancient Temple of Aphrodite provide the first historical anchor.The Hellenistic ruins of the Temple testify to a glorious Greek past,one that was transformed and built upon by a multitude of invaders who coverted Rhodes for its stategic position and resources.
