Overview of Rhodos - Old Town

North East Rhodes Island, Rhodes Island

The ancient city of Rhodes was founded in 408 BC, when the citizens of Ialysos, Lindos and Kamiros decided to built a strong new island capital. The city plans were drawn up by Hippodamous, and Rhodes was soon admired as one of the most beautiful cities of the period.
The new city quickly developed into a financial and cultural center, but by the time it became a Roman, and later a Byzantine, dominion it had lost its ancient glory. In 1309 the Knights of Saint John conquered Rhodes and they built strong fortification, transforming it into a thriving multinational medieval city. In 1523 Rhodes was conquered by the Ottoman Turks, and the Greeks had to settle outside the walls, where they created the new districts known as "Marasia".
In 1912 Rhodes, as well as the whole of the Dodecanese, were seized by the Italians. The new rulers enhanced the architecture of the city with magnificent buildings, wide roads and squares. It was not until 1948 that Rhodes officially bacame a part of Greece.
