    Rhodes History
    It is the most famous street in Rhodes. It represents the different countries which composted the Jerusalem Ordee and its famous Knighs. Nice conservation and some of them can be visited as they are now Museums.. It is a good idea to do it while visiting also the Great Masters Palace just at the end of the Knights Street.

    Interesting street
    The Knights houses line this uphill street to the palace, Built into each house is a stone with carvings telling people where the knights came from. The road is cobbled with stones and can be slippery when wet. There is a house you can walk into and it is in it's original state. May of been a bit of work done. The second floor has a room with flags and information boards.

    A nice street at the old town.
    Nice street in the old town of Rhodes. It is dark at night, but still special. Wouldn’t recommend to go there if you are not around, but if you’re already walking at the old town - give it a look.

    Interesting sight
    Very interesting (and steep) road. Loved the look and feel of the area. Definitely wished we had a tour guide to get for in depth information, but enjoyed casual stroll up and down the road. Definitely worth the visit

One of the highlights of the Medieval Town !
The street is about 600m long and follows an almost exact east to west direction.
Seven imposing inns or Auberges where constructed in the early 16th century.
Each one represents one of the seven countries, or tongues that the Knights were originated from and the facades are decorated with emblems and details that reflect their respective country.

My best advice for this lovely town is to just wander around, picking narrow alleys to investigate, with the better options being further from the main tourist street. That’s how we found this Street of Knights. It feels really old and unchanged, and, even better, less tourists. Easy to find as you stumble your way through the town, just find where the tourists are and go in the opposite direction. Cool visit.

This street is one of the main attractions in the old town of Rhodes and is a must for all tours. It’s one of the best-preserved medieval streets in Europe. It’s interesting, but also a bit frustrating. It’s basically a long row of closed buildings which used to house the various contingents of knights. Only some of the buildings had signs describing what used to be inside. There was no real information to see or read. It was somehow fascinating, but it was empty except for the tourists, but I couldn’t quite envision knights on their horses galloping down the street. I understand from some of the other reviewers that sometimes some of the Inns are open to visitors. We were there on a sunny Tuesday morning in September, and the entire street was shut as tight as a drum.

To walk the very streets that the knights on horseback rode on was just incredible. I imagined the hustle and bustle of the street markets that would of been lined up close to the walls on the streets . You could take a side street and just follow it along and come across some gorgeous flowering trees, cats lazily sleeping on the street in the shade or in a windowsill. So many things to take pictures of. I suggest take your time, enjoy and take in the history here, because it is EVERYWHERE you look.

The Street of Knights is a cobble stone lane about 1/3 of a mile long. Dating back the the 15 th century and is home to the Inns of the Tongues where the Knights held meetings and ate meals . The lane follows a route from the ancient acropolis to the harbor.

It is an historic street so do not get your hopes up for too much activity other than walking and looking at the facades. That said, it is worth a walk to get a sense of the town. You can get a sense of the different groups that occupied the street and imagine the noise of the horses on the stones.

The old street is an interesting walk up even if you don’t go inside the Palace of the Grand Masters at the top. I preferred to spend time at the bottom of the street in the St John Hospitallers. I was more interested in the inside of the St John building and it’s gardens. ( St Johns were an order like the Knights Templar).

Stunning to think that all knights from different countries on their horses have walked up this street so many times in the past . Each having their own quarters then at the top you reach the palace of the grandmasters. Please do this if you go to Rhodes you will not be disappointed.

Having come to the old town to find out about the Knights Hospitaller, we found extensive information in the Spanish Inn or Langue. Very interesting and professional exhibition in beautiful rooms. We sat at the open upper windows to view the Street of the Knights and imagine it as it would have been. This exhibition saved our day as we had been disappointed in the lack of information at the Grand Palace. Entrance here was free. Recommend coming here to find out the history of the knights.
