“The Epic side of story, heroes and common people”

The island of Rhodes appealed to countless invaders through centuries, becoming the scene of some of the greatest battles of World history.

It is here before these walls that Mehmet the conqueror with his 100000 men was defeated by a handful of knights Hospitalers fighting to survive along with the Greeks, Jewish and others living in the fortified city. The siege of Rhodes was known by its contemporaries as the “Iliades of its time” and the defenders of the city became living legends.
