The Municipality of Rhodes belongs to the Prefecture of the Dodecanese of the South Aegean Region and includes the island of Rhodes as well as its neighboring islets. The Municipality owes its current form to the consolidation of the former municipalities of Rhodes, Archangelos, Aavirous, Afandou, Ialysos, Kallitheas, Kamiros, Lindi, South Rhodes and Petaloudes, according to the Kallikratis program.
The Municipality has an area of 1,407.94km2 and a population of 115,490 inhabitants, based on the latest census of 2011.
The seat of the Municipality of Rhodes is the city of Rhodes, which is also the capital of all the Dodecanese.
The island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese and the fourth of Greece. It is located southeast of the Aegean Sea, but also very close to the coast of Asia Minor.
According to the findings, it seems that Rhodes was first inhabited during the Neolithic era. The inhabitants of the island were the Minoans and the Achaeans. The Dorians, however, were the ones who gave Rhodes flourishing and built the three major cities of the island: Lindos, Ialysos and Kamiros, which together with Kos, Cnidus and Bodrum constituted the Doric Cepal. During the Persian wars the island was forced to fight with them, but later became a member of the Athenian Alliance. In 408 BC, the three Rhodian cities decided and founded a new city, the present city of Rhodes. This city was considered one of the most beautiful of antiquity and flourished in the 4th and 3rd century BC. , showing great power in commerce, shipping, but also in culture. Although he gladly welcomed Alexander the Great, Rhodes then faced difficulties with his successors, since the city had commercial dealings with Egypt and especially with Ptolemy. This led Antigonos, one of the successors of the great military commander, to try to occupy the island, something he did not succeed at the end. The Romans followed in 164 BC with Rhodes to acquire privileges. In the 1st century AD, the Apostle Paul taught Christianity on the island. Then we have the Byzantine period in Rhodes. For the island a new era grew, when, in 1309, the rule of Rhodes was undertaken by the Knights of the Order of St. John coming from the Holy Land. The Knights were the cause for the erection of the medieval city of Rhodes, which has been preserved until today and has been declared City of World Cultural Heritage. The walls that the Knights built and fortified the city managed to ward off the attacks of both the Sultan of Egypt and Mohammed II, but unfortunately Suleiman the Magnificent managed to conquer the island. Those Knights who were left have capitulated and left for the island of Malta. The conquerors of the island followed the Italians in 1912 and eventually Rhodes was incorporated with Greece in 1948 along with the rest of the Dodecanese.
Mandraki is the port of Rhodes and is located east of the city. At the entrance there are the statues of fir and deer, while the tradition says that there was the Colossus, a huge brass statue, considered one of the seven wonders of the world. It was the work of Lyndius sculptor Haris. Its construction lasted 12 years and was completed in 282 BC. The Colossus had one leg at one end of the entrance to the harbor and the other on the other and below the ships. The statue was lost due to an earthquake in 226 BC.
Above the harbor dominates Kastello, the palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes. Built in the 14th century, it was destroyed during the Ottoman domination, but the Italians restored it in 1939. The medieval city stands untouched by the centuries. There we find Symi Square, the ruins of the temple of Aphrodite, the municipal gallery, the decorative arts museum, the Auvergne (hotel at the time of the Knights), the Knights' Street. The guided tour of the medieval city border is magical. The cobbled streets, the galleries of those centuries have remained intact.
North of the city there is the famous aquarium, while to the old town there is the impressive arched building of the New Agora.
Two miles from the city center on the hill is Monte Smith. There is the Ancient Acropolis with its findings.
The island of Rhodes, apart from its city, has to display dozens of attractions, unique coastal areas, excellent beaches. Ialyssos is 8 km from the city of Rhodes and there are remnants of the ancient city, as well as Byzantine and medieval elements.
Away from the capital, at 52 km, is perhaps the most beautiful village of Rhodes, Lindos, with its acropolis, its traditional architecture and its picturesque location. Remains of the Knights' Castle are preserved, on the Acropolis there is the Great Lodge, and the temple of Lindia Athena of the 4th century BC.
Another well-known point of the island is the famous butterflies that are a valley and millions of butterflies sit on the tree branches. The spectacle is unique and the right time is in the summer.
Rhodes is one of the most cosmopolitan islands of Greece. Thousands of hotel units are of high aesthetics and luxury, but the nightlife is very intense, especially in places like the capital, Faliraki, Kolimbia, Kallithea and others.
The island has a lot of organized beaches, but also small creeks. Her most famous beaches are Elli, Ialyssos, Kiotari, Faliraki, Kallithea, Lindos, Tsambika, Andon Quinn (named after Navarone's Cannons and its protagonist and a lover of Rhodes Anthony Quinn and others.
