The ruins of Ancient Kameiros are amazing. You can see the remains of the reservoir, temple and agora which will give you an accurate idea of what ancient life was like in Rhodes. When you stand at the Acropolis on the hilltop you can see the coastline of Rhodes and get a great view of the sunset if you visit in the afternoon. I really reccomend visiting, for more info you can check out this link https://www.greekboston.com/travel/ancient-kameiros-rhodes/

This looks beautiful! One of my goals is to visit Rhodes and travel all over the island. Is there anything to do near the ruins?

This can be a fun place to visit! Here's an article about it:

 

Did you know that Rhodes is a medieval island?

Rhodes has so much more history than we know! This video showcases how its truly a medieval island :)

Intellectuals at Rhodes

I know some of the intellectual life in ancient Greece, but I am curious about its present state, since I hope that there will be a resurgence -- a needed resurgence. How is it in Rhodes? Meanwhile I'll mention one ancient Rhodian for the general reader: Panaitios (often referred to as Panaetius of Rhodes) was born in Rhodes, lived 185-110 B.C. He was a Stoic philosopher who travelled to and spent time in Rome and in Athens. In Rome he was a teacher of Cicero, who followed him and developed themes from his work, "Peri ton kathEkontos" . Cicero's work, which is translated and available online is titled "De Officiis" [= On Duties] . Panaitios maintained that virtue alone is not sufficient to attain a happy life; health and some resources are also needed. Along with the older Stoics, he maintained that humans ought to act according to nature, and that nature, by means of impulses, steers us to act properly/morally. So, Cicero dwells upon the "instinctive" love that parents have for children, for their spouses, and --to some extent -- for humans in general (on account of their being human). This love-based ethics was widely accepted during the Middle Ages theologians....

Admiring the natural beauty of Rhodes

This is one of my favorite islands in Greece for sure, and I don't really think it gets enough credit!! Just look at this natural beauty! Does anyone have pictures of Rhodes that they would like to share? I would love to see them :)
