Harbour at Mandraki Medieval streets of Rhodes Renowned as an archaeological treasure house, the city of Rhodes, or Rodos, sits on the northern tip of the island with sea on three sides. Rhodes is really three cities in one. The first Rhodes Town is the modern city – a monumental heap of whitewashed concrete which, but for some nice Italian buildings, varies from the dull to the seedy. The third Rhodes Town is the seashore development that runs along the north and east coasts awash with luxury hotel complexes and overwhelmingly devoted to tourism. There are smart restaurants and some interesting shops and cafes but the main impression is cheap, brash and tacky. Rhodes Town beach is shingle and sand with little in the way of charm despite the setting and the sunshine.

History[ edit ] The cannons protecting the Palace of the Grand Master Due to its geographical position as a gate to the Aegean Sea , Rhodes has always had a vantage position on the trade routes between the West and the East and has been an important stop thanks to its well protected harbours. During the Hellenistic period in the late 4th century BC, the town of Rhodes was already enclosed in defensive walls which allowed to withstand the siege of Demetrius Poliorketes king of Macedonia, in BC.

Lindos Monthly Climate Average, Greece. Retrieved 12 September It was one of six Dorian cities in the area known as the Dorian Hexapolis. The eastern location of Rhodes made it a natural meeting place between the Greeks and the Phoenicians , and by the 8th century Lindos was a major trading centre. In the 6th century it was ruled by Cleobulus , one of the Seven Sages of Greece.
The importance of Lindos declined after the foundation of the city of Rhodes in the late 5th century. In classical times the acropolis of Lindos was dominated by the massive temple of Athena Lindia, which attained its final form in around BC. In Hellenistic and Roman times the temple precinct grew as more buildings were added. In early medieval times these buildings fell into disuse, and in the 14th century they were partly overlaid by a massive fortress built on the acropolis by the Knights of St John to defend the island against the Ottomans.
Acropolis[ edit ] Above the modern town rises the acropolis of Lindos, a natural citadel which was fortified successively by the Greeks , the Romans , the Byzantines , the Knights of St John and the Ottomans. This makes the site difficult to excavate and interpret archaeologically.
