The Palace tour guide's narrative of the history of the place is far more interesting than the place itself if you've seen other European castles, so be sure to have the right tour guide or you wont be able to appreciate the significant role of Greece in the crossroads of Eastern and Western history. However, if you are looking for... More

Great break from the heat with many exhibits and should take an hour or so to look round. Worth 6 Euros I believe

As taken out of a Fairytale or at least a knights' movie the palace is a grandiose architecturally building which many different parts to see- the lower floor has a -guess what, archaeological collection- but the upper floor retains its original medieval character with all the rooms and spaces as they used to be. You will see furnishings from the... More

The building is pretty nice, but the exhibition is really not worth the price... No initiation given on what we see, access only to a few rooms. I recommend to have a look at the place from the entrance. That's enough.

This palace of the Grand Master was completely restaured during the Italian period(1912 until the end of the II World War).At that time the island was under Italian administration(Greeks would say "under Italian occupation".They were the times of Italian Fascism and Italian architects restaured accurately the remains of this palace which is unique in a Greek island.

It's very impressive to have this view of such an historical castle of Christian Knights. Of course, it's been maintained in perfect state, but you really feel like it's like these old times. Floors, windows, furnitures : you can see how and where they lived. It costs 6 euros per person (children free), as usual on historical places in Rhode... More

Considering this is a Palace that's been through several wars and has a good few years on the clock, it is a remarkably well preserved and physically very impressive edifice - though it has, of course, been restored several times. Like other museums in Rhodes, however, it struggles to convey a real sense of the town's interesting history.

The building and the mosaic floors are impressive - I loved the sheet alabaster window panes in the high windows but... We paid our money lateish in the afternoon and only on entry was it apparant that the exhibition on Rhodes History was closed, when challenged the only offer was that we attend on another day and our ticket would...
