    Monolithos Castle

    Hike up to a fortress and spectacular viewpoint

    Monolithos Castle is a 15th-century fortress built on a 100-metre cliff in Rhodes. One of the oldest sites in Greece, it towers above the sea on the west coast of the island. As it has never been sieged, the structure remains relatively well-preserved.

    The hike to the top isn’t exactly leisurely, even though there’s a purpose-built walking trail to take you there, so be sure to bring some water and snacks to keep you going. However, your efforts will be rewarded with panoramas of the rugged coastline and the Aegean Sea. You can also visit the 2 white-plastered chapel ruins, which give you a nice view of the surrounding landscapes.

    Windmills of Mandraki

    Visit one of the most legendary sights in Rhodes Town

    The Windmills of Mandraki are located close to a jetty in the northwestern part of Rhodes Town. There were over a dozen windmills that were used to grind grain from ships that docked at the harbour. Only 3 of the mills have been preserved and beautifully renovated to their original state. At the end of the pier, the Fort of Saint Nicholas is a gorgeous medieval bastille that’s worth checking out, too.
