  • General Information about RhodesGeographyRhodes Island is situated at the crossroads of two major sea routes of the Mediterranean between theAegean Sea and the coast of the Middle East, as well as Cyprus and Egypt – The meeting point of threecontinents (on geographical longitude 28° from Greenwich and northern latitude 36°, on the south-eastern part of the Aegean Sea).Its area is 1398 sq. km, with a maximum length of 77 km and maximum width of 37 km, the largestisland of the Dodecanese complex.The fame of Rhodes’ first appearance reaches back through time.Legends offer many accounts of her watery origins and even today it is not hard to imagine the islandas the sea-nymph Rhoda, daughter of Poseidon, wife of Helios, the blazing sun god, rising gently out ofthe warm, blue sea.The facts about Rhodes are a little less hazy. There is evidence of Neolithic, Minoan and Mycenaeansettlement long before Homer wrote of Troy. Nowadays, Rhodes is better known for the splendour of itsmedieval architecture and the struggles of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem against Sultan Suleiman.Indeed, were the last Grand Master to ride into his city again today, it would appear very much the sameas when he was compelled to leave it, on 1st January 1523.The diverse cultural heritage, set on a Greek island amid the colours and landscapes of the easternMediterranean, have assured Rhodes its place as a leading leisure and business destination.Tradition, culture, the arts, history (Rhodes’ ancient sites and monuments include some of the mostcelebrated in all Greece), music, sports, excellent food and wines, hundred of excursion opportunities,nightlife, sociability or solitude, shopping . . . – Rhodes is indeed the island of sun, sea and sand but hasto offer quite a lot of culture to the visitors!Rhodes’ unique and impressive attractions include:Rhodes Old Town, completely enclosed under dramatic walls, the largest inhabited medieval town inEurope, is an architectural marvel and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mandraki harbour is thedeparture point for daily excursions to Lindos, Symi, Tilos, Patmos and other island within theDodecanese.Lindos, with its ancient Acropolis, is now a picturesque village.The Valley of Butterflies at Petaloudes, a stroll by streams under shady trees.Seven Springs near Salako, easy walking among the pines by flowing waters and springs.Monolithos village, with its castle clinging to the rock high above the sea.Filerimos marks the site of ancient Ialysos, with Minoan, Mycenaean and Doric connections.The Acropolis encloses temples, monastic buildings and medieval castles.Ancient Kamiros was the island’s third great city-state in classical times. Today it is a peaceful hillsideruin of temples, public buildings and houses.Afandou on the east coast has the island’s major golf course.
