This lovely piece of Architecture in Rhodes is sure to transport you back into the Middle Ages, or teleport you into a Disney Film, whichever you prefer. The typically medieval structure is a delight to see. The rounded towers with their jagged balconies are simply lovely.
The entrance itself is grand and imposing. Built by the Knights of Rhodes, the castle speaks volumes about Rhodes’ medieval history. But the piece de resistance of the castle are the stunning mosaics. Thalia, Poseidon and many mythological figures can be seen in their mosaic forms in this lovely castle. There is a lot of history to be explored in Rhodes and this is the perfect place to do it.

A nice place. Thick walls are recreated from neat big stones. Italian Mussolini restored after the Ottoman Empire. There are beautiful photos. There is a beautiful view of the sea. There is a lot of attention to the architects and architects. I recommend this monument of architecture. The castle inside conveys the atmosphere of a past era.
Located in Rhodes Old Town, The Palace of the Grand Master is a great place to visit. It's picturesque, steeped in history and its setting couldn't be more complimentary. Rhodes Old Town is also a UNESCO World Heritage site: one of two on Rhodes. When I visited, there was an exhibition on the ground floor. No cameras or video equipment allowed for this. Toilets are located within the courtyard for public use. There are also vending machines for cold drinks if you are thirsty. Cost is €6 per ticket, but you can buy one for €10 which gives you access to other museums. Some people I've spoken to suggested about an hour to view The Palace, but I was there for closer to 2 hours - only because I liked what I saw. Well worth a visit. Lots of cafe's around the area for something cool to drink, or a coffee.
Great historical site! This place is a true diamond for Rhodes island! Inside Rhodes old town, a must visit palace with unique items, flags and rooms! The palace of the Great Magister is a giant place of history showing the life of the knights! For safety reasons they have to guard better the main entrance steps. Kids should never be unattended!
Huge palace full of history. It is incredibly large and beautiful, with high ceilings and original furniture and art throughout. I found it pretty lacking in historical information compared to other museums in Greece, but there was a lot to see in any case. The best part of the tour was walking outside the Palace walls down to the exterior medieval walls that empty out a portico into the main street near the harbor.
In Rhodes Old Town. The Old Town is one of the best preserved medieval towns in the world. It is delightful and beautiful. The Knights of Rhodes used to have their palaces here. The palace of the grand master is massive and well worth a visit. Nice breezes even on very hot days. Nice cafes and restaurants all around. Well worth the time and effort to visit.
