Monolithos Castle on Rhodes

Castle merged with the hill, on which it is located. Now here are only ruins from the castle, but here you can still find a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea.

Monolithos Castle

#4 of 21 places to visit on Rhodes
Monolithos Castle is located near the village of Monolithos, 70 kilometres from the capital. The castle was built by the Knights of the Order of St. John and was intended as a viewing tower. To the Monolithos Castle leads a stone staircase, which was cut down into the rock and only those who possessed the necessary dexterity could pass it.

Unfortunately, about the past greatness of the castle remind only remnants of walls. Near the castle is a snow-white chapel of Saint Panteleimon of the 15th century.
