There isn't much to this, but it is one of those things that you are glad you have seen as it was one of the orignial 7 wonders of the world. It doesn't take long to see it.

All that now remains of the supposed place where the Colossus stood guard are two pillars at the entrance to Mandraki harbour, now topped with statues of a Stag and a Deer. Worth having a look while you walk round the harbour area and letting your imagination take over.

One of the original 7 Wonders of the World, the big monument has now gone! Probably in pieces at the bottom of the ocean. Still a nice walk around.

definitely. The curiosity would have stayed with me. Something like the Copenhagen siren, which I saw in my very young years. These two columns in memory of the Ancient Wonder are even more important. And to go there, you will enjoy a really beautiful walk around the harbour. Why not 5 stars? Well, there's so much of beauty in Rhodes...... More

Just knowing I was in the shadow of one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world made me tingle inside. I could just imagine how grand the colossus must have looked for mariners entering what is now Mnadraki Harbour.

There are two columns with a figurine on top of each one. Not as tall, as we expected but they are picturesque. Worth a visit, as is a walk around the harbour and marina. Not spectacular but a good photo opportunity.

How can you NOT stop at one of the 7 ancient wonders of the world? Its fun to stand one on side of the harbor with the stag statue and imagine the Colossus! I know experts argue over whether it truly existed, but just going there and envisioning it is truly a "pinch me" moment!

There is now a fort on the footings of where the colossus is thought to have been situated. We really liked visiting here, seeing the yachts in the harbour, and the video history of Rhodes battles to prevent the turkish takeover were very interesting.

Excellent view from the harbour. We also did a boat trip with Rizos Cruises (highly recommended) and you get very good views of the harbour from the boat. Especially on the way back as the sun is setting.

We can not say we dislike the old. Ancient is narrow means no large spaces. Lovers of antiquity must comply. Too much cosmetic damage ancient vestiges.
