Medieval City, Rhodes Town

4.7
One of Europe's best-preserved medieval towns, Medieval City serves as a blend of Gothic and Ottoman architectural styles, seemingly frozen in time centuries ago. The historical district is both a home to over 6,000 permanent residents and Rhodes' major tourist attraction, designated as a World Heritage Site. The town's medieval walls enclose Gothic military fortifications and castles constructed by the Knights of Saint John, as well as public baths and mansions erected by the island's Ottoman rulers. A compact area where two distinct cultures met, fought, and built, the old town also contains many well-preserved churches and mosques. Make the most of your visit by arranging for a guided walking tour. Using our custom trip planner, Rhodes Town attractions like Medieval City can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • o visit to Rhodes is complete without a visit to the Medieval City of Rhodes. Only a 5 minute walk from the Cruise Terminal and you are at the Walled City itself with its winding cobbled streets...  more »
  • The knights of St John were here for 200 years helping the crusades. The history is interesting and you get to see a real castle!  more »
  • Nice , quiet, breathtaking. The old castle in the winter is a totally different experience . You can enjoy walking around in silence and seeing the great buildings of the castle . Highly recommended.....  more »
