Check out our Top 10 attractions in and make sure you don't miss it
Palace of the Grandmasters
This site is the most impressive in the town of Rhodes. The original building was destroyed by an accidental gunpowder explosion during Turkish rule but was rebuilt again. It had its peak in the 14th century. The hospital that was here was known as the ‘Palais De Malades’ and was equipped to treat over one thousand patients. The museum here has a collection of antiquities and carved heads of various gods and goddesses.
Most tourists who visit Rhodes are attracted to the ruins here. It is located about 30 miles from the town of Rhodes. The Ruins here can be viewed on a walk through the village and up the hill. The shops sell fine linen, crewel, embroideries and lace tablecloths. Early morning is the best time to visit here.
Valley of Butterflies
The Valley of Butterflies is about 5 km southeast of the village of Theologos. Also known as Petaloudes it is one of the most attractive places on the island. August is the best time to visit here as this is when thousands of butterflies of the Genus Panaxia species fill the valley to reproduce.
This is one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes. Remains here suggest that there was occupation way back in 3 BC and also settlements and cemetaries dating back to the Mycenaen – Minoan period. The hill found here is named Filerimos and in the early days was known as Achaia and was used as a place of worship.
This beautiful escape found 30 km from the city of Rhodes has pine trees, rustic bridges and trickling streams. A fun activity here is to wander around the footpaths trying to find the source of the seven springs which is a green lake nestled in a pine clad gorge. You can also get to the lake by following a 610 foot long dark tunnel.
The Monastery of Tsampika
This Byzantine church is dedicated to our lady and is set on top of a hill with breathtaking views. The road will take you half way up the hill but the second half can only be reached by foot up 350 steps. According to the legend circulating here, it is said that any woman with difficulties getting pregnant should walk up barefoot and pray to the virgin and she will be blessed with a child.
Yet another ancient city in Rhodes is Kamiros located on the north western shore. This city along with Lalysos and Lindos created the powerful city state of Rhodes in the 5th century. As ruins here suggest that Kamiros was an agricultural society that produced oil, wine and figs the first inhabitants are presumed to have been Achaeans. It was the first city in Rhodes to cut its own coins.
The main attraction here is its medieval castle that stands on a single rock from which the villages name is derived Monolithos or ’Lonely Rock’. A ten minute walk will bring you to the summit and along with the castle stands a church known as Agios Panteleimon. Below the castle is a café and the road leads on to a beach for a peaceful setting.
St. Paul’s Bay
An idyllic bay popular for scuba diving with caverns and caves to explore with its white clear waters and just lounging in the sun. Have a great view of Lindos castle from here and take part in other fun water activities such as swimming and snorkeling. It is a location that is tucked away and worth a visiton a nice sunny day.
Kahal Kadosh Shalom Synagogue
When translated its name means Synagogue of the Holy and is located in the Jewish quarter of Rhodes. It holds the title of the oldest synagogue in Greece. The synagogue was constructed in 1577 and has been used ever since. It is one of four synagogues to survive the bombing in Worl War II. Since there are only 35 Jews on the island today the synagogue is used for services during the summer when there is a majority of Jewish tourists.
