Artist's Description

The Fortress of St. Nicholas, Mandraki Harbour, Rhodes.

Mandraki, the military harbour and most likely the harbour of ancient Rhodes Town, was protected by a tower built in 1464-67 by Grand Master Raimondo Zacosta at the end of a natural wharf where other mills were located. The tower was turned into a small fortress by Grand Master d’Aubusson who built a bastion around it after the first siege of Rhodes. Today the fort functions as a lighthouse.

Rhodes is a Greek island approximately 18 kilometres (11 mi) Southwest of Turkey in the Eastern Aegean Sea. It is the largest of the Dodecanese islands.

The Old Town of the City of Rhodes is the oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
