Travel Tips for Rodos (City)

Aphrodite & Rhodos

by RoyJava

It is well-known that Aphrodite was born of the foam of the sea just right at the place where Cronus threw the genitals of his father Uranus (he castrated him). She married to the lame Fire-god Hephaestus (a smith), and did some unfaithful acts with the War-god Ares (and a lot of more lovers). Aphrodite is an ancient East Mediterranean goddess and named in the breath of Astarte.

It is told Rhodos is her daughter (by Poseidon) who became bride of Helios, Sun-god (also Apollo named). So he named the island of Rhodos after the nymph Rode/Rhodos, his wife. An ancient temple can be found in the old city of Rhodos (see further on).

Rodini Park

by steventilly

We went to Rodini Park because the guide books made much of it. I have to say that we were disappointed (more in "tourist traps") but it was worthwhile being in that area because we wandered around the streets of that area, seeing the shops, cafes and houses of the locals that made no concession to tourism.
It was interesting, and very nice. While on this little walk we passed this church, which is both huge and beautiful. A good example of the kind of thing you can find when you go "off the beaten path", even in a big city.

The City Wall

by himalia11

A massive wall sourrounds the whole Old Town. It is about 4 km long and looks very impressive! Here you see parts of the wall at the Freedom Gate.

The wall has been build by the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem as a defence against the Turks. When the Turks arrived, the wall resisted, but after a time of siege, Turks and knights started peace negotiations, and in 1522, the knights and lots of Greek left Rhodes.

Son Et Luminere/Municipal Park

by Myfanwe

Every night in the Municipal Gardens there is a sound and light show called 'Son Et Luminere'. The show re-enacts thestory of the Knights including their fall at the siege of suleymand the Magnificent. The show starts at around 20:15 with and English performance most evenings ; Greek, Spanish, French, German and Swedish versions are also held each week.

We had a look around these beautiful gardens during the day, they were awash with beautiful flowers which attracted some great species of butterflies. Towering over the perfectly tended gardens is the imposing structure of the Grand Masters Palace - the star of the show! Even though we were not around during the evening for the sound and light show, I have been told it is very good & it is definitely on my list of things not to miss on my next visit.

The Gate of St.John - Koskinou Gate

by Fam.Rauca

This gate, is also called “The Red Gate” is a very imposing gate, at the entrance into a very important commercial street in south direction.

The Greek architect Manolis Kundis, was the master builders that created this gate in the year 1457.

The escutcheon over the gate has a triangular form and represents the relief sculpture of the Sanctus Johannes.
