What makes Rhodes such a different place to most Greek islands? One thing is for certain, it is not just the long and beautiful beaches, or the 300 days of sunshine it offers. You can find sea and sand all over Greece.
Rhodes island offers its visitors a history that goes back thousands of years, to the age of mythology.
The beautiful myth of Rhodes says that after Zeus’s victory against the Giants, he decided to divide the Earth among the Olympian gods; the only god who received nothing was Helios, the god of the Sun.
According the myth, he was absent and “No one remembered to include him in the draw”! When he came back he demanded his share, but Zeus told him that he was not able to hold the draw again, because the rest of the gods would not agree to it. Helios was disappointed but asked Zeus and the other gods to promise that the land that was to rise out of the sea could be his.
As he spoke, a beautiful island – Rhodes – slowly emerged from the depths of the blue sea. Helios bathed Rhodes with his own radiance and made it the most beautiful island in the Aegean Sea.
The visitor can find monuments and evidence of Rhodes’ long history scattered all over the island, and in almost every place he goes, there is a piece of history and a myth to explore.
