  • This time I was able to photograph better than the place where it is said he placed the mythical colossus of Rhodes, the statue built in honor of the God Helios. . Now the two columns which mark the Mandraki Harbour access with 2 bronze statues of deer. I am attaching some pictures If this review did you like, you can read about my many other on Rhodes, comes after Kallithea, Lindos and Haraki and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • Catastrophic, a place so deemed, what a disappointment! No indication of the place, no sign on the columns. Cats, cats and more cats, a horrible smell. Shame to the Greek Ministry which does not have to honor its history.

  • The location of the original Colossus of Rhodes was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The entrance of the harbor is where it was located. It is marked by deer columns.  more »

  • It is not what I expected , there was a time when the Colossus had a huge statue which could be seen from miles away which was demolished long ago. But the view there is still nice . Now you will get to see statue of deer in place of the actual statue that used to be there long ago .
  • Best sight I've ever seen. I remember, as a kid, climbing to the top, and watching the boats out at sea. Many of these boats can now be found o. The seafloor. But, back in the day, they were a sight. I remember, when the boats docked, the captain would give us kids a dried fish. Many friends died from them, but they were still the bee's knees.
  • A fantastical beast of a statue! Truly magnificent, and the everlasting glow of the golden piece of art is something you should not miss. I went ferry between its legs and it was enormous!!
  • Sorry guys...I had eaten a lot of spicy food the night before the fall of Collosus.. When I woke up ..I shat so hard that it led to an 11.2 earthquake and the destruction of the giant statue...I feel bad now for you... Sorry for once more😢 Interesting fact Did you know that half of the statue was destroyed from an earthquake and the other half was stolen from some Pirates?
  • Highly recommend. If you have not seen this statue, can you really say you have been to greece? I find it insulting that people are actually saying that the statue is not there. You have to be blind to not see it. It can even rival our statue of liberty. There is even a spot where you can engrave your name. The whole family loved it. Will view it again if I have the chance.
