It was a real shame due to the economy there were not enough staff to have all places open. That said it was nice to see. Not much here to inspire the kiddies.

A magnificent castle! Now, I have a soft spot for old castles, but this is really great, perfectly conserved also inside. And huge. Architectonically beautiful. I think I made hundreds of photos, 140 kept, a few I will attach... as soon as I can make a difficult choice...

All and all it was really impressive walking around the castle. Unfortunately, the place looks like it's run down. We were there on a Sunday were there were three men standing there one of them was chain smoking in the entrance (but I guess that's part of the island charm) I expected a bit more effort to be done to...

The palace of the Grand Master of the Order, would have to be one of the greatest monuments erected in the Middle Ages. We were able to admire not only the palace itself, but also the impressive collections of tombstones, paintings, statuary, jewelry, books and mosaics. It is a must to see.

Nice place to visit in Rhodos. Not much furniture, but enough to make you wonder of the grandeur and the wealth of the monks who where christian crusaders of the Middle Ages, against the arab people!

Another must see sight in Rhodes. If you enjoy history you will enjoy visiting the Palace although kids may get bored.

Plenty of history and things to see, to while away a morning or afternoon. There are great walks around the town and there is a lot to interest history buffs.
