  • 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 »
  • What was and what is not obvious, and that is not very clear. The ride is worth perhaps if absolutely doing nothing. What exactly is-wind and very strong, as well as a bunch of bars near the Colossus.

  • This is one of the hipothetical location of the great statue of colossus! It's the entrance of Rhodes old harbor ,Mandraki . Even the statue doesn't exist any more,one of the seven wonders of the ancient world it's worth the visit.
  • Beautiful area, with benches to sit and look out to sea or watch the bussle of the tourist harbour boat.
  • It's not there so nothing to rate. Just two statues replacing it. Not impressed! No sign or anything saying this is where it was this is what it looked like
  • Nice harbour/place next to the columns to just sit and wind down. Great views across the harbour.
  • A lovely stroll in the sun watching the boats come in and out
