Looking along the long breakwater at the front at Mandraki Harbour (the main harbour of Rhodes for almost 2,500 years) on the beautiful Greek Island of Rhodes.
In the middle of the breakwater stand the three medieval windmills which ground the grain unloaded from merchant vessels in the harbour.
At the end of the breakwater, at the entrance to Mandraki Harbour, stands the Fortress of St. Nicholas.
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.
