Welcome to Rhodes, the island of the Knights and the capital of the Dodecanese.
An island that is ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an active holiday! With green mountains, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line with golden beaches, Rhodes is really a blessed place. Add to excellent facilities for tourism, special blend of the island of cosmopolitan and traditional but with many cultural and archaeological sites.
Thanks to its strategic position, Rhodes was a very special place. The ancient city of Rhodes, the construction of which began in 407 BC, was designed in the urban system of the city devised by the greatest city planner of antiquity (Hippodamus of Miletus). Rhodes soon became one of the most important naval and commercial centers of the eastern Mediterranean. When was the province of the Roman and later the Byzantine Empire, originally lost the ancient glory. But in 1309 the Knights of St John of Jerusalem occupied Rhodes.
They built strong fortifications to protect the island, transforming it into an important administrative center and a thriving multinational medieval town. In 1523 Rhodes was conquered by the Ottoman Turks, the Greeks had to settle outside the city walls. During the Turkish occupation, erected new buildings in Old Town, mainly mosques and baths. In 1912, Rhodes and the other Dodecanese islands seized by the Italians. The new rulers adorned the city with splendid buildings, broad streets and squares.
The Grand Master's Palace was rebuilt and the Street of the Knights rebuilt to recover the medieval purity. It was not until 1948 that Rhodes again became officially part of Greece. In 1988 the Medieval City of Rhodes was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
