Photos of Rhodes, Greece

Site-Map
Rhodes is a Greek Island in the Aegean Sea. The old city of Rhodes on the island of the same name was first built in 408 BC. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe and a definite top travel destination. Located in the Aegean Sea, Rhodes is a fascinating place to visit. This ancient city was home to knights in the 14th century and is much an original castle-like walled fortress city as anywhere you'll visit. The original structures and narrow walkways transport the visitor to those earlier times. Photos of some of the ancient monuments on the island included on this page are the Acropolis of Lindos (see page 2 of this site), the Temple of the Pythian Apollo, and the walled medieval city of Old Rhodes. This ancient Greek city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Larger versions of these photos of ancient Rhodes can be seen by pointing your cursor or using the Slideshow below.
