The icons are to be seeing and admired in the little chapels of the cities, or in the big churches.
The price of these artworks is wide-ranging, and caused by the age, art significance or of the material of them.
There are several mosques dotted around Rhodes - we have already seen the one in the new town with its the cemetry but there are more in the old town - in various states of repair. This shows the door detail of the mosque of Sultan Mustafa which is seen in Platia Arionos.
Cosy greek sandwich bar
The Koukos cafe is very nicely decorated sandwich bar on two floors and apparently very popular among locals. It's so busy that it can take up to 10 min for waiters to see you but finally when you get seated, you get very good service and very good sandwiches and salads. They have good variety of sandwiches, and the greek salad was also very good. Everything is brought in authentic trays which makes it look "more greek". We really enjoyed it.
