Situated close by to the harbour and near the shops in the the old town. It is an open area with several convent places to sit to rest weary legs from the shopping.

The ruins of the 14th Century Church Our Lady of the Burgh (Church of Panagia tou Bourgou) is located on Pindarou Street inside the old city walls. It was the home church for the Knights of Saint John, and is one of the oldest remaining buildings from the era of the knights.

A must if you visit Rhodes Old Town. Although we didn't actually go inside, there was lots to see from the outside. Amazing history and a must if you love ancient history. Also visit the new Rhodes town along the Marina, with lots of shops and restaurants. And don't forget to visit the old town with all it's quaint shops,... More

The ruins of the once majestic church of the Lady of the Castle are a beautiful monument but should not be viewed separately from the old medieval town of Rhodes. It is a free, open to the public, interesting location and a nice opportunity for good pictures.

You cannot pass through the old town and not see this torn down cathedral which holds a lot of history in its walls. Impressive how it still stands resisting time, wind, sun and rain. really enjoyed passing through it every time was heading back to my hotel
