Archaeological Museum of Rhodes
Another Rhodes Town must-see is the 15th-century Hospital of the Knights, which is used to house 7,000 years of archaeological finds from across the island.
The standout exhibit is the marble statuette of the Aphrodite of Rhodes, dating from the 2nd century BCE. Among the pretty gardens lies a pavilion displaying wall-mounted mosaics and a reconstructed burial site of a 1700 BCE helmeted warrior and his faithful horse.
The history of the ancient building is also fascinating, as those wounded when fighting against the Ottomans were brought here to be cared for by the Knights of St John, who were renowned for their high standards in medicine and hygiene.
