The Castle of Monolithos in Rhodes: Monolithos is a small village 70 km to the south west of Rhodes town. On top of a huge, 300 feet rock standing above the village, a Venetian Castle was built in 1480 to protect the area from pirates and enemies. The Castle is today ruined but offers great views to the beach of Fourni and the two islets just opposite the coast. To reach this Castle, you have to climb a narrow path with many steps, among lush greenery.
Most of the walls of Monolithos Castle have been ruined for a long time. In the middle of it, you will find a white chapel dedicated to Saint Panteleimon and another smaller chapel, both ruined today. There are also some old cisterns, which were used to collect water and supply the whole area.
