Largest of the 12 Dodecanese islands, Rhodes is most famous as the site of former Colossus of Rhodes, among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The huge statue once straddled the city harbour, but was destroyed many years ago by an earthquake. Within capital's massive citadel walls the preserved medieval Old Town presents a beehive of narrow cobbled streets, dominated by historic Avenue of the Knights and Palace of the Grand Masters. Remember to visit Lindos, a National Historic Landmark, amongst the most captivating Greek sites and a setting of great antiquity.
From 12th through 16th centuries the Rhodes island was the headquarters of crusader Knights of St John, mostly of French origin. The Knights spoke in 7 tongues and were led by their Grand Master. In 1522 the Knights' rule in Rhodes ended when Suleiman the Magnificent led an army of 100,000 against them. Those who survived the siege then fled to Malta.
