Rhodes culminates at Mount Attavyros (1,216 m). Its rocky coasts surround strips of arable land where citrus fruits, olive trees, vines, etc. grow. The city of Rhodes is located at the northern end of this island dotted with small villages and seaside resorts, including Faliraki, Lindos, Kremasti, Haraki, Pefkos, Archangelos, Koskinou, Kiotari, Embona (Attavyros), Paradisi, etc. 18 km south of Turkey, Rhodes is, in fact, the largest island in the Greek archipelago of Dodecanese, marked by the presence in medieval times of the Knights of the Order of St John during the Crusades. The old town of Rhodes, to be discovered with a tourist guide, shelters the medieval street of the Knights and the Palace of the Grand Masters which was besieged by the Ottomans then occupied by the Italians. The former Knights' Palace is now a historical museum. But the most famous site on the island remains the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, of which unfortunately there is nothing left to observe today. Located on a promontory 55 km south of the city of Rhodes, Lindos is a classic Greek village of white houses, overlooked by an acropolis dedicated to Athena Lidia and overlooking the magnificent sandy beach of Agios Pavlos. As in the city of Rhodes, tourism has taken a considerable place there. However, Lindos remains an exceptional site, without cars. Come out of tourist season or early in the morning to enjoy the alleys and atmosphere of this timeless destination (and always with your travel guide in hand). Finally, Rhodes is a gateway to discover the other islands of the Dodecanese.
