Rhodes Town (Modern)

Distance from Rhodes City: 0Km Add your review about Rhodes Town (Modern)

In the most picturesque of the three ports of the city, the yacht harbor of Mandraki, we are welcomed by two bronze deer, which have become the modern emblem of the town. Nearby on the mole stands the lighthouse tower of St. Nicholas and the three old windmills. The impressive walls of the Medieval Town and the numerous monumental buildings surrounding Mandraki add to its majestic air – among others the New Market, the Archbishops Palace, the Annunciation church, the Central Post Office, Town hall, Theatre and Government House (Italian building). At the north end of the town, and the most northern point of the island, stands the Institute of Marine Biology (Aquarium).

Today, Rhodes has to offer an enormous variety of colors and forms, activities and sightseeing. Its marvelous beaches, big modern buildings, picturesque neighborhoods and imposing medieval edifices are all swamped in greenery - in the town itself the streets are lined with trees. Vegetation even grows up as far as the walls of the castle, and the numerous palm trees hint at the tropical. For many, the best approach to Rhodes is from the sea, from which the Medieval City towering over the harbor can be seen, with its impressive walls, towers, bastions and battlements, and behind it, the domes and minarets of Turkish mosques, which had been build after the Ottomans invaded and took over the island in 1522 from the Knights.
