Medieval City, Rhodes
(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Medieval City and other attractions to your Rhodes Town trip itinerary using our Rhodes Town vacation builder.

  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A maze of narrow streets in the old walls, so many sights to see and lots of little shops of all kinds including snooping. A beautiful square on which open many places to eat or drink. The only drawback ... You get lost!!!

  • Should you find yourself in Rhodes, visit it. It will make you feel like you're back in time. I did not have the chance to go everywhere (this place is huge!). The one thing I did not like is that it ...  more »
