Rhodes, Island of Wonders: An intensive Guide; Alexia Amvrazi; Greek City Times

It was past midnight, I was cradling my extremely sleepy four year-old while stifling my own yawns, and looking forward to nothing but the soft bed awaiting me at Hermes Hotel, as the taxi drove us from the ferry boat to Mandraki marina. Upon arriving at the atmospherically lit harbour, lined with high Medieval walls,…

Visit Greece: Top 5 architectural monuments in the country; Tornos News

Greece – Medieval City of Rhodes

Apart from the fact of having the best weather and climate conditions, wonderful beaches and rich culture, Greece is a country of great architectural significance. So, let’s start a unique journey identifying some of the most important monuments of architecture in the country, in order to explore this aspect of Greece. See the 5 most popular ones below:

1) The villages on the Aegean Islands:

The villages (Chores) on the Aegean Islands is the perfect example of “less is more”. The whitewashed villages and alleys are the main feature of the simplistic Cycladic architecture, which is well-known worldwide for its plasticity. Some excellent examples can be seen on Santorini, Syros, Naxos, Serifos, Amorgos, in Little Venice on Mykonos, in Molyvos on Lesvos and in Gialos on Symi.

2) The Medieval Town of Rhodes:

It is considered to be one of the most well-preserved castles in the world, which travels visitors back in time, in the Knights’ Era. It has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1988.

Greece – Medieval City of Rhodes

Medieval walls enclose an enchanting microcosm, a place where different eras, cultures and architectural styles meet.

Τime is locked out. Everyone else is within: ancient Greeks,ByzantinesOttomansJews and Italians. This is, however, the romantic view; in truth, they are not alone, these wonderful ghosts. With them are tourists in their thousands, archaeologists, tour guides, artists, permanent residents, business people and touts, all continuing to write the history of the Old Town of Rhodes, a story which has been unfolding for the past 2,400 years.

And this is why I approach those mighty walls, four kilometers long, with some trepidation about what I will find. How harmoniously does the glorious and intriguing past coexist with the intensely tourism-oriented present? The monumental with the commercial?

Greece – Medieval City of Rhodes

The Greek island of Rhodes — located 11 miles off the Turkish coast — should be on the “must-visit” list of any traveler to the region.

Fall is the best season to visit the Mediterranean. The sun is still bright, the temperatures are warm and — most importantly — the crowds are considerably thinner than during the summer.

The Greek island of Rhodes — located 11 miles off the Turkish coast — should be on the “must-visit” list of any traveler to the region. It served for millennia as a bustling crossroads for commerce and in the crosshairs of military conflagrations between Europe and the Middle East.

The fourth largest of the Greek islands still bustles, but today it bustles with tourists.

No one had told us that Rhodes (Rodos in Greek) was one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations.

TOWERING GLORY

The medieval Old Town of Rhodes is no longer the target of attackers, although it may appear at times to be under siege by mass tourism. This UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site combines vestiges from a glorious past – Byzantine templesCrusader-era buildings and Ottoman mosques – with a lively present. On its streets, you expect armored warriors, mounted on their horses, to turn up at any moment – and the feeling intensifies once you’re in the Palace of the Grand Master, which was the order’s headquarters.
