Asklipio Medieval Fort

Distance from Rhodes City: 61Km Add your review about Asklipio Medieval Fort

In the southern part of Rhodes and not too far from the rapidly developing resort of Kiotari, visitors can find the small village of Asklipio. It is evident though, that the village is not yet developed touristically probably because of its position, close to a very popular sea resort that has drawn all the attention of the authorities. However, a tiny village hidden in between major touristic areas and astonishing natural surroundings, certainly worths a visit since it’s got many things to offer such as the charm of a virgin place, peace, and of course precious sightseeing.
In Asklipio, like in all other coastal areas, there is a stone fort castle that was built by the Knights of Saint John in the 13th century, at the top of the highest hill, in order for the knights to be able to watch the activities of the enemies taking place in the sea.

Castle location:
60.9 km from Rhodes Town, the castle lies upon the highest hill of the village and is easily accessible due to a number of signs directing the visitors all over the route on the winding mountain. It is also easily seen from the valley below and the road. All you have to do, is follow the signs and make sure you park your vehicle in the designated parking area.
