Monolithos, a little village approximately an hour away from Rhodes center, is known for its namesake 15th century castle, one of several on the island. This one truly stands out, due to the height of its location, at 100 meters above sea level. It is set atop a rocky albeit verdant hill and can be reached via a built-in rock stone staircase for that original Medieval feel. When accessing it, be cautious on the stone steps which can be slippery from normal wear and tear. Once you reach the top however, you will be swept away by the breathtaking views over the Aegean. A bonus when visiting this attraction is that there is also a little chapel dedicated to Agios Panteleimon within the grounds.
Local insight tip:
While in Rhodes, why not take the opportunity to visit several of the castles on the island. These include Faraklo in Charaki, the medieval castle near Kritinia and the Knights Castle at Asclepeion.
