Know More about this tour
Following our experienced guides, the tour leaves the medieval town behind, passing through the 15th century Porta Marina (Sea gate), Pierre dAubussons symbolic work of art, to reach the region of Mandhraki. The tour stops at the Dockyard gate, frequently transformed through the centuries, sometimes to protect the shipyards and some to allow for the marine and land commerce to pass more freely. Then we head north, to the eastern side of the port, passing by the three picturesque windmills. They are all that is left from a series of fourteen medieval windmills, once separating the major from the minor port. Then the tour visits the Tower of St. Nicholas, a majestic 15th century fortress which stands guard to this day at the end of the pier, providing a unique view of Rhodes coastline & a perfect photo opportunity.
Afterwards, the tour glides towards the western side of the Mandhraki harbor passing by the New Market and the repurposed Italian administrative buildings of the Interwar period. Next stop is the iconic couple of deer standing on two pillars, at the entrance of the harbor, often portrayed now as a symbol of modern Rhodes and then the tour visits the orthodox church of the Annunciation of Virgin Mary. A former Catholic cathedral, this basilica follows closely on the model church it imitates, that of St. John the Baptist, while it features a unique and harmonious fusion of gothic and byzantine architectural styles, of eastern and western influences.
After exploring the highlights of the modern part of Rhodes town with your guide and taking advantage of great photo opportunities, you will glide back to Ippokratous square, the heart of the Castellania district, once the centre of commerce and justice, where your tour will come to an end.
