Rhodes Old & New
Greedy and hasty as they were, they forgot all about him. Not a single stone was left for his share.
On returning from his trip, he saw Rhodes, the daughter of Aphrodite, emerging from the sea, where she had been submerged up until that point.
When he learned of the injustice that had been done, he demanded that Rhodes be given to him.
Zeus, although already planning to keep her for himself, had no choice but to accept..."
This is how her beauty, the clear blue sky, and the seashells found on the island's mountains are explained by mythology.
Rhodes' charm and location have always been the cause of her wealth as well as of all her troubles.
Located in the middle of three continents, where seas and civilizations are connected, it has always been desired by persistent, yet not always kind, lovers.
Since 4,000 BC, Rhodes has been loved by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Genoans, Pirates, Knights, Ottomans and Italians.
They all had their own way of showing their affection.
Today, we, the arrogant ones who claim Rhodes to be ours, share her charm, wisdom, and everlasting youth with those who visit her for a few magical days.
She, a beautiful and elegant hostess, makes all of us feel privileged.
