Discover the secrets of Rhodes! Explore the Jewish and medieval heritage of Rhodes Old Town in our exclusive Medieval Rhodes & the Jewish Quarter tour.
The Medieval City of Rhodes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known throughout the world. Less well known, however, is the Jewish Quarter that once flourished within its walls. Our exclusive half-day tour, Medieval Rhodes and the Jewish Quarter, introduces you to the fascinating Jewish heritage of Rhodes Old Town, before taking you back in time to its medieval origins.
Medieval Rhodes & the Jewish Quarter starts with a stroll through La Juderia, the Jewish Quarter. As you wander along the narrow, winding lanes, our knowledgeable guide will tell you the history of La Juderia and the Jewish people who made Rhodes their home.
Along the way, you’ll visit notable Jewish landmarks including Alhadeff Park and Alhadeff Street, named after a prominent Jewish family, the Square of the Martyred Jews and its seahorse fountain, and the Holocaust Memorial. You’ll also visit the Kahal Kadosh Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in Greece, and the Jewish Museum of Rhodes.
Next, we’ll take a journey back in time to the medieval period. Our guide will describe how the battles and sieges fought by the Knights of St. John shaped the town we see today. You’ll see medieval monuments and walk along the famous Street of the Knights, the best-preserved medieval street in Europe.
Our tour concludes at the 14th century Palace of the Grand Master, once home to the leader of the Knights of St. John of Rhodes. Today it’s a museum housing medieval furniture, elaborate mosaics, and archaeological exhibits from Rhodes.
This exclusive Medieval Rhodes & the Jewish Quarter tour is for 1 to 9 people, on a private or semi private basis.
