The port outside the Medieval Town of Rhodes is called Mandraki and was probably the main port on Rhodes in ancient times. Its name comes from the word mandra (enclosed-walled port) and it was used by the Order of the Knights of St. John for tailoring the naval uniforms.
Today, Mandraki offers a tour by sea to admire the interesting attractions. Start your walk at the characteristic three mills and continue toward the entrance to the marina.
There, the cylindrical columns rising high of the Deer and Doe, a landmark on Rhodes, is the point where one of the seven wonders of the world, the famous Colossus of Rhodes, once stood.
Continue walking until you reach the impressive Evangelismos Cathedral and at the end of the promenade you will see the characteristic Elli building.
