Rhodes Travel Guide - Rodos Information


Ancient mythology says that Rhodes emerged from the sea and the Sun God (Helios) asked Zeus to grant him the island. Therefore the island became his and that is why Rhodes is always sunny and radiant. The residents wanted to show the Sun God their appreciation and love so in the 4th century B.C. they built a huge bronze statue of the God near the port, from where all the ships had to pass from beneath the statue’s legs.

The Medieval Walls of Rhodes as well as the Medieval Town are considered the most important sights of the island. The walls were built during the Byzantine period but were completed by the Knights of Saint John who made them impenetrable and powerful with a trench and bastions.
The Knights also built the Palace of the Grant Magister that is crossed by the Knights road. Inside the Medieval Town there are many churches such as the church of the Virgin of the Castle, Saint Trinity, Saint Catherine, Saint Athanassios, Saint Paraskevi and of course Saint John
