From the height of the ruins of temple, you can see how nature connects with the ancient history.
How to see the panorama of the ancient Kamiros town on Rhodes
If you want to see incredible views from the height of the ruined ancient temple, you need to come to the ghost town Kamiros. You can get there from the city of Rhodes by bus that will take you to the entrance of the ruins.

Once in place, that was destroyed more than 2000 years ago, you will feel thrilled. And no wonder - the city was mentioned even in Homer's Iliad, it once played an important role in the state, but a strong earthquake erased it from the face of the earth.

Now, passing along the main road and reach the Acropolis, you will see at an altitude of 120 meters above sea level the temple of Athena. It offers a panoramic view of the ruined city - the ancient ruins on the background of the surrounding mountains and the sea. Amazing place to give free rein to the imagination and imagine how the ancient people lived here in their heyday.
