When many people think of travelling to Greece for history, they may think of Athens or Crete… but I'm here to tell you that Rhodes is one of the best places to visit if you love history. The island is full of mediaeval history and has some of the most beautiful and old mediaeval architecture in all of Greece. Some of the best places to explore this history are Ancient Kamiros, Palace of the Grand Master, and the archeological museum of Rhodes.

Rhodes is a great place for history lovers because there's not only an Ancient History, like at the Acropolis at Lindos, but there's also the Medieval history at the Palace of the Grandmaster. It's so cool, I love learning about it.

I totally agree with this - I have enjoyed my time learning about the history of Rhodes. I made it to Kamiros and thought the ancient site was so interesting! One of the reasons why I like Rhodes so much is also because of the Medieval history.

Yes, definitely a great place for mediaeval history! Something that many people don't expect to see in Greece. Most people think that the history is all going to be focussed on ancient Greece.

If you love history, Rhodes should be your next destination!

Lindos & Pefkos had a lot of damage .

Another earthquake hits waters near the island of Rhodes

Another earthquake hit the waters near island of Rhodes this week, it was pretty small and there aren't any damages or losses on the island itself. Many of the islands suffer pretty frequent earthquakes because of their proximity to volcanic and tectonic plates. The island is prepared for this and takes many precautionary measures. The earthquake was 4.5 magnitude which would usually cause slight damage to buildings but gladly it was in the water.

Birds eye view of Monolithos Castle in Rhodes

Monolithos Castle is a stunning castle that was built in the 15th century and remains until this day. This is a birds eye view of the castle so you can get a good idea of what the ruins look like. The Castle is located in the the village of Monolithos which is about a couple of miles from the city. There is no fee to get into the area and walk around and its open pretty much all day!
