Rhodes. Greece. View of the 14th century golden walled Church of our Lady which was built by the Knights of St John and is the most impressive building at ancient Ialyssos. The structure includes chapels and a monastery, which were all faithfully restored by the Italians during their occupation of Rhodes in the early 20th century. In front of the church is a sunken 6th century baptismal font. Situated on the acropolis of Mt Filerimos on the verdant windswept west coast of Rhodes, Ialyssos is an outstanding fusion of ancient Doric, Byzantine and medieval archaeological remains and is one the finest sites of Rhodes Island. The island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Island group and one of the most popular Greek Islands.
