Rhodes – The historical island

Magazine History destinations Rhodes – The historical island

Rhodes is the island of knights who got there after the fall of Jerusalem. The path to the castle of great master in the old town Street of the Knights is the best-preserved medieval stone path. This street is especially nice when it gets dark, because it is illuminated special lamps. Castle Order of St. John is at the end of the street, and in it we can see what he looked like everyday life boats. One room is dedicated to the Maltese Knights.

This “bleached” looks more like a town than on Santorini Rhodes itself, and to the Acropolis, where the temple of Athena Linde, you must climb up the evening, because it is enjoying the view at sunset is greatest. Beaches with turquoise water around Lindos are beautiful.
