The palace was built in the 14th century by the Knights of Rhodes. It was restored during the Italian occupation of Rhodes in early 20th century. The palace is large, but it is mostly empty. Despite that grand empty feeling of the palace, the restoration was very well done. I could really get a good sense of what a knight was actually seeing inside of the palace when he was walking around the castle hundreds of years ago. There are beautiful mosaics on the floors throughout the castle, and lots of hallways and large rooms to wander around in. As luck would have it, I was in Rhodes on a Greek national holiday in October, so there was no entrance fee on that day - very lucky for me! .

A must see, you can get lost in here. Make sure you go to where you can see what was once the moat. One of the premier reasons to go to beautiful Rhodes.

we enjoyed the castle, and suggest going early, then returning in the evening as our ticket is good all day if you ask them to stamp it for you. The castle is big and empty, and the atmosphere in the evening was more evocative - you could let your imagination run. We had hoped to walk on the walls, but unfortunately they were closed for a year of repairs. We actually enjoyed walking the outside of the castle more than the interior, but both are part of the Rhodes experience and not to be missed!

Wonderful place, historical attraction. Here you can feel the greatness of old times. I have been few times there to get some inspiration and it did always have a magical influence on me. Good for everyone-a tourist, a historian, a writer...
