The cathedral practically doesn't exist anymore, although it still has a certain beauty to it. On a hot day, you can get some rest in the shade of its destroyed walls and imagine what the rest of it looked like.

Even the new town bit is pleasant and some good shops and cafes in the side streets. Their are a few restaurants in the old town which look good but didnt eat... More

It was destroyed by Eartquake and never rebuild since. There is no charge to visit it, actually you will walk in the middle of the small sized cathedral to access a nearby park in the old jew quarter of the medieval city or akantia gate. Only the arcs of the east side reminds what was this place built for, actually... More

On our way out to the ship we saw the cathedral and went through it and was very sad that it was not well preserved because it has history and very sure it was a beauty.

Some atmospheric ruins located towards the Jewish quarter end of town. Much improved I think by the restoration, before which they had a road driving through the middle of the church! Funny to watch the local kids use the inside as a makeshift football pitch!

I liked to walk around this ruined church. The place was near the gate of old town and I could take good pictures in sunset.

If you're in the Old Town then this is definitely worth a short visit. There isn't much to see or do except take a couple of photo.

Our Lady of the Castle is the earliest of the churches in Rhodes dating back to the 11th century. It's the first site you come across when using the Saint Catherine Gate. This was the Orthodox cathedral in Byzantine times and a Latin cathedral under Frankish rule. The site is enchanting and is much visited. Most of the walls and... More
