THE ISLAND OF RHODES
THE ISLAND OF RHODES (1400 km2)
About Rhodes, probably many of us still remember the history of the Order of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem. After the fall of the Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1291, the Order sought refuge in the Kingdom of Cyprus, then later, in need of a permanent base, they attacked the island of Rhodes which surrendered to the knights in 1309 after over two years of campaigning. Finally the Order came to build their place in Malta.
In 1912 the island of Rhodes became part of Italy, then since 1947 this attractive island belongs to Greece. This year 2015, a small team of Paola Binh-Lam (Vietchidao) has explored Rhodes and Karpathos and we have received beautiful pictures from their journey (posted below).
Best wishes for a continuing great Autumn Season.
