The ruins of the Lady of the Castle Cathedral are usually quite crowded with tourists, especially on a sunny afternoon when the location is one of the most popular places for visitors to have their photograph taken (the site is best photographed in the afternoon). It is a relatively small space open to the sky between the remnants of the... More

Not a great deal to see, but nice to sit and reflect. Could do with a few more seats around the paved area. Good for taking interesting photos.

Entering the walled town through the Kastou Gate and wandering through the gardens, you will come across the ruins of this once beautiful Cathedral, the stonework will astonish you. It takes little imagination to conjure up a picture of the Cathedral before it was desecrated. Even in its present state, a great backdrop for a picture of your partner/friend. It... More

It is a small remnant of the church but hints at its past attractiveness. Try to go late in the day to catch the sun warming up its stonework for good photographs. Yet another of the wonderful things to see in Rhodes Town.
