Rhodes is a unique place, a large size island and it is the capital of Dodecanese. A lot of tourists visit the island every year to see the site of Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. They say that Rhodes was inhabited since 400 BC. Since her location was the " key" location between Europe, the middle East and Africa, there were always travellers stopping by. Trade was very much developped here in ancient times. The Colossus of Rhodes was built between 304 and 293 BC by the sculptor of Chares. It took him 12 years to accomplish this project. Unfortunatelly, an earthquake in 226 BC damaged parts of the city and the toppling of the Colossus. In the Roman years, Apostle Paul visited Rhodes. The town has four marinas.
