Kritinia Castle, Rhodes
Kritinia Castle is a medieval castle, with elements of the Byzantine and Venetian architecture. Built in the 15th century as a defensive point, the castle served as an excellent lookout tower, because from it people could see all of the ports and the nearby islands, so that the approach of the enemy would be noticed immediately.

Unfortunately, now you can find here only the ruins, the remains of walls and the most spectacular views of the Aegean Sea and the islands.
