Great monument

Highly recommend driving/walking to the end of the harbor where you can get close up photos in front of the monument. Nice view as well of the harbor and boats.

A nice place to sit and watch the coming and going of the small boats. It is probably not where the colossus really was if you visit the museum all this is explained.

This was so funny! Me and my boyfriend went to the town to have a look to places to go we did the research previously but once we found it we were thinking that we were at a Game of Thrones scene ahaha! Although the statue disappeared you can still imagine how it looked and take some pictures on it... More

While the Colossus itself is now gone, stand where its footprint once stood. We actually slipped off our shoes and walked barefoot through the clear Aegean and imagined what it would have been like to stand there, under the giant statue. You're leaving your own footprints in history!

The Colossus Statue disappeared after a massive earthquake hit the Island; and thieves moved all bronze pieces that left no trace of this gigantic wonder. The majority believe it stood at the entrance of what is now Mandraki Harbor, and is marked by two Pillars with a deer and a stag at the top. The location is very beautiful and... More

There is much debate about where the Colossus of Rhodes actually stood. The site on the Rhodes Harbor with the 2 deer on pillars is a leading option. It's also a beautiful place. However, there are no remnants of the Colossus itself. And it's extremely likely that it did not truly straddle the harbor, so the deer do not represent... More

You have to imagine how it was. Now it is only two columns by the gate of Rhodes port. How it paint, it was really one of the world's mirracles
