Rhodes, Greece

The history of habitation on Rhodes stretches back through recorded history. In the Middle Ages, Rhodes prospered as part of the Venetian and Genoese trading empires, then was conquered in the 1300s by a band of Crusaders known as the Knights of Saint John. The Knights fortified the port of Rhodes and became a dominant maritime power that lasted for two centuries.
