Attractions close to the hotel

 

The "Aquarium of Rhodes" is part of the island's Hydrobiological Station located on the South East tip of Rhodes. It was constructed during the 1930's, when Rhodes and the other Dodecanese islands were under Italian occupation.

The structure of the building, both inside and out, has throughout the years, remained very much the same as it is today. Other than the addition of the museum and a seal tank.



The "Modern City" of Rhodes
From 1963, it has belonged to the Oceanographic and Fishing Research Institute, and in 1985, was renamed the "Hydrobiological Station of Rhodes". And after World War II, the station began operating as as a museum too.!

Mandraki Harbor - Rhodes

In the east of the modern city there is a significant portion of ancient Rhodes. This is the ancient harbor - Mandraki - with the statues of deer and fawn at its entrance. Tradition tells us that this was where the famous "Colossus of Rhodes"
one of the Seven Wonders of
the ancient world, once stood.
A long mole protects the harbor and has in its middle three old windmills and at the Northern end a stands the "Fortress of Saint Nicholas"
and the lighthouse.


It is from Mandraki that the small vessels which go on daily cruises to Symi, Kalymnos, Pserimos, Patmos and Nissiros set out.
Very near the entrance to the ancient harbour is he church of the Annunciation, the Orthodox Cathedral in a Gothic style, with wall-murials by Fotis Kontoglou. In the whole of this area in front of Mandraki, as elsewhere, the Italians erected various buildings with large voids between them. Among them is the Governorís Residence,
a building with adorn with Gothic arches all round, and stands a little to the north of the Church. Today it is home to the headquarters of the Prefecture.
