A castle is a type of fortified structure built in Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages by European nobility. Rhodes is a famous historical destination from the buildings that the Order of Saint John builded through middle ages. The citadel of Rhodes, built by the Hospitalliers, is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, which in 1988 was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The island of Rhodes, is famous for its many castles but the seven principal ones are at Rodos Town, Archangelos,Feraklos, Lindos, Asklipios, Monolithos and Kritinia.
Apart from the “famous” castles there are there are a number of other castle ruins dating back to Classical and Hellenistic times, some of them with ruins dating back to the Prehistoric and Classical times.
We at Magister, are totally proud of the “knightly” history of Rhodes, full of medieval tales about dragons, mysteries and brave battles in the shadow of an ever changing world. We are so proud that we even given a name relative to that period to the restaurant as Magister means a house-master in medieval Europe. We even designed the interior of the restaurant with lots (maybe overdecorated !) of medieval replicas of swords, shields and armor, so our guests will feel the “medieval breeze” of a royal diner at a “fine inn” of the times!
