This may be the place where the statue was located...they are not sure. The harbor is nice but tgere is not much to see. It collapse 56 years after it was constructed due to an earthquake. 800 years later people traded the bronze so nothing is left. The harbor is nice and there are 2 pillars that were erected with deer on top of them where the Colossus may have stood. Obviously there is nothing to see and it's a place where you use your imagination of what may have stood there in 226 BC.

All well and good, but there is NOTHING here! Its not even confimed as being the site of the statue. Some historians believe the it stood elsewhere in Rhodes, so little is known about it really.
The fact that its actually posted on online maps as a 'tourist attraction' is mind boggling.
It's like getting into a boat, paddling to a remote location in the Med and saying it's the site of the ancient city of Atlantis. Who knows, if might be.
Dont come here expecting to see a statue, the remains of a statue, the ancient site of a statue or anything else connected with a statue.
There is a great fort here though, the fort of St Nicholas....and some old windmills.

Absolutely scratching my head as to why this is listed as tourist destination. I love history and was so looking forward to seeing the remains of one of the seven wonders of the world. Instead, a closed museum and a small piece of metal artwork, I am assuming is a representation of the colossus of Helios. Hard to say as there is no information about of any kind. Shame. Nice walk though.

While you obviously don’t see the actual Colossus, there are statues which supposedly mark where it was positioned, though this is very much up for debate. There is really no information in the area so do your research before coming if you are interested in the history. The location is nice, with a lovely look out to the sea from the harbour, and the Saint Nicholas Fortress situated in the background.

Standing before the believed sight of the Colossus really fills your imagination with wonder. But if you're looking for something tangible to actually 'see', it's just the blue, blue sky and a pair of deer statues to mark where the big guy once stood. It's worth a visit for sure though; it really feels like you're in the presence of something ethereal here.

I loved that it was so easy to get here and it wasn’t an overcrowded site. We could see our cruise ship from here and there was a great Post Office over the road to send postcards from. Close by you could buy tickets to do a day trip to Symi Island.

If you go there and you expect to see a big statue, you will keep expecting , because the statue doesn't exist!!! Only two deers where the feet of the statue were expected to be. Just walk around.

Go there and you will see inly the idea of Colossus because you are not going to see not even the ruins of it. Despite that the view is very beautiful.

I am a history graduate, and I was really excited to explore Rhodes. The concept of the colossus, a 30 metre high statue of the Greek Titan Helios, is incredible, and would have taken real engineering if it really did exist.

The problem is, the two relatively small Deer statues no no justice, other than mark the site of the supposed statue. They are often obscured by passing boats and ships, and there is no accompanying museum/information on what the colossus is/was. Considering it is right next to the incredible Old Town part of Rhodes, I wouldn't bother planning in more than a mere cursory glance to the statues, before you dive into the old city and get lost amongst the little lanes and alleys looking for history come to life.
