Rhodes New Town in Pictures

 

The modern town developed outside the walls of mediaeval Rhodes and throbs with life and activity throughout the year. It is full of surprising contrasts. Historic buildings rub elbows with modern blocks of flats. It is made up of wide streets, squares, and a multitude of shops. The architecture blends modern with Venetian, Gothic and Arabic elements.

Around the port, the Mandraki, we find the imposing buildings in neo-colonial and Italianate style, which lend grandeur to this part of the present-day town.

At the entrance to the harbor, atop tall columns, stand the two bronze deer - characteristic landmarks of the island. Here, according to tradition, was the place where the famous Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, once stood.
