Rhodes ,Old town of Rhodes ,Ippoton Street of Knights

The famous Street of the Knights,Ippoton.

The most important and imposing street in the

Collachium,leanding ,to the Grand Master's Palace.

 

The earlier Byzantine city was extended,and the walls fortified,by the Knights of Saint John in the 14th and 15th centuries,creating the medieval city of Rhodes we see today. Eleven Gates  lead to the interior whichis,in turn,divided into two sectors:the Collachium,where the knights lived and where  the most importtant Knights houses are still to be found, and the

"Burgh",the main city. The old Town as the locals call it is today one of the best preserved fortified medieval towns and is included in UNESCO list of

Word Heritage Site Walking the cobbled streets the vissitor can admire the magnificent buildings of the Knights,the moat and walls with their ramparts, the Byzantine churches and the mosques,the squares,the gardens and the courtyards of the houses. The feeling is very mush as though the clock has stopped somewhere in the past,but at the same time the visitor discovers

that this unique complex is a vibrant town, full of surprises,and just crying out for exploration.

 

 

 

The Grand Masters Palace,the most imposing edifice in the  Old town,was the headquarters of the leader of the

Order of the Knights of Saint John,and at the same time a strong fortess.

  It was built inthe 14th century on the  ruins of a Byzantine fort. It consists of two storeys with a large internal courtyard. It was destroyed inthe period of Turkish rule  and rebuilt in the 1930's in the magnificent style we see now.

Today  the Palace is a museum,and its many rooms contain important archaelogigal finds from ancient and

medieval Rhodes
