Avenue of the Knights (Ippoton)

Running down from the hilltop citadel to the commercial port and crowned by the dramatic Palace of the Grand Masters of the Knights of Rhodes, the historic Avenue of the Knights (or Ippoton) takes the prize for Rhodes’ most famous street. The noble heart of the Old Town of Rhodes, this was the street where the knights lived and held meetings, and it remains one of Europe’s best-preserved examples of a medieval street. 

Strolling the cobblestone thoroughfare effectively evokes the atmosphere of medieval Rhodes, with its narrow walkway cocooned by a wall of honey-colored stone buildings and monumental archways. Lining the 600-meter-long avenue are the Inns of the Tongues, the dining and meeting houses of the Knights, each divided by language, or ‘tongue’, according to their origins and signed with stone-carved codes of arms.
