The old town of Rodos

The earlier Byzantine city was extended, and the walls fortified, by the Knights of Saint John in the 14th and 15th centuries ,creating the medieval city of Rhodes we see today. Eleven Gates  lead to the interior which is ,in turn,  divided into two sectors: the Colloquium,  where the knights lived and where  the most important  Knights houses are still to be found, and the

"Burgh" ,the main city. The old Town as the locals call it is today one of the best preserved fortified medieval towns and is included in UNESCO list of

Word Heritage Site Walking the cobbled streets the  visitors  can admire the magnificent buildings of the Knights ,the moat and walls with their ramparts, the Byzantine churches and the mosques ,the squares ,the gardens and the courtyards of the houses. The feeling is very mush as though the clock has stopped somewhere in the past, but at the same time the visitor discovers

that this unique complex is a vibrant town, full of surprises, and just crying out for exploration.
