Rhodes: The eighth wonder of the world !

 

Between history and the modern times, the city of Rhodes holds a lot of surprises for you…

 

On the historical side:

The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of Helios, in bronze, whose height was over thirty meters. This gigantic statue was toppled in 226 B.C. by an earthquake. It was the sixth of the seven wonders of the ancient world !

 

The Knights of Rhodes:  after the loss of the Holy Ground, the “Hospitaliers de Saint-Jean de Jérusalem” were the only ones who remained in the region to pursue the crusade, while getting settled in Rhodes. They were also the only ones to present a double vocation, humanitarian as well as military, and their hospital of Rhodes, on the cutting edge at the time, was highly reputed and known all the way to the West.

 

Today, the HELIONEPHRO Center pursues this long tradition of medicine and care.
