Although it is in Museum Square many people miss this gem. It was the cathedral of the Knights and then turned into a Mosque but many of the Christian pieces of art and frescoes have been found and preserved, and really a gem to visit.

A nice church a little away from the tourist crowded roads of the old town and just close to the Jewish quarter of the town.

Like many of the Greek orthodox Churches, it was at one time converted to a Mosque... and then converted back! It also helps one understand more of Rhodes' rich, checkered and colourful history In addition there are many other interesting other attractions to be seen/enjoyed...More

I guess I can only appreciate so many churches that all look the same. If you are in the area stop by and take a quick look. If not don't search this one out.

Not a big or marvel church, has some history, is interesting, do a little research not just wander in like we did. Old town is interesting but you can get overload.

A little depressed, a little abandoned, a temple that has remained and refers to distant years. If you are not passers not worth going just to visit

This Church was closed and looked neglected for some reason; it was certainly converted into a Mosque during the Ottoman rule as the minaret is still showing in the background. The Church is surrounded by some ruins that are worked on; maybe the rehabilitation will...More
