Rhodes Island: A Breathtaking Beauty & History
Rhodes is one of the notable Islands in Greece with many beautiful accolades. Many refer to it as “the Island of the knights”, “the Island of Roses”, and “the pearl of the Mediterranean” being one of the seven famous wonders of the ancient world.
Records showed that immigrants from Crete settled in Rhodes as far back as 1550 BC. Although the myth founding the Island remains a subject of debate, it leaves one with a smile. It is said that Rhodes came out of the sea at the command of Helios, the God of the sun.
