Archaeological Sites Rhodes The castle of Kritinia

The castle of Kritinia is an imposing fortress, which was built in 1472 during the Knights' period in Rhodes in order to protect the village from Turkish attacks.
Inside are ruins of the church of St. Paul, as well as coats of arms from the great Masters of Rhodes.
Its view is impressive as you can see the island of Halki and further back the coasts of Asia.
The castle of Kritinia is 55 km away from the city of Rhodes. It is built on a hill and has panoramic sea views. Initially, the settlement was coastal (in the current location of Kamiros Skala), but it was moved more mountainously, for more security by the pirates. The ancient settlement was finally submerged.
