Rhodes 2022 Castles


Once the Knights of St John chose Rhodes to become their seat, they began fortifying it. They’ve erected castles, and two of the best preserved are located in Monolithos and Kritinia. They are both built on hills – for the Knights it was a strategic decision meant to enhance their defensive values, but for us, it means that the ruins offer a breathtaking view of the sparkling sea. The castles are situated on the western coast of the islandwhich makes both of them incredibly romantic choices for watching the sun go down.
