Ancient Kamiros, Rhodes

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Explore the remains of an ancient civilization dating back nearly 3,000 years. Ancient Kamiros was established by the Dorians but was likely inhabited even earlier by the Achaeans. The ancient town flourished as an agricultural society, producing oil, wine, and figs during the sixth century. The town was abandoned gradually as the residents moved to the nearby city of Rhodes. Stroll the streets and residential areas to imagine what life would have been like in the ancient town. Walk up to the top of the hill to see the acropolis and a covered reservoir, which could supply water for up to 400 families. Enjoy a spectacular view of Rhodes and the sea below. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Salakos holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ancient Kamiros and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This ancient ruin is a real glimpse in to how this community once lived. extremely advanced for its time and set in a beautiful location. the restoration work on the site has been done very well. would definitely recommend going, but be warned on a very hot day there isn't much shade around.
  • Great place to visit, old ruins shows big community was living there. Entrance is paid but for 4 person we got free pass
  • Very beautiful landscape together with fantastic ruins, though the admission is 6 euro per adult, while the parking is free.
  • Great archeological site
  • Great ancient ruins and great view on the sea... really educational
