New preservation plans move forward for the Medieval city of Rhodes


Greece’s Ministry of Culture and Sports has announced a new budget for the further protection and exploitation of the cultural heritage of the medieval city of Rhodes. 

The plans will go ahead with the Integrated Strategic Plan for the promotion of the archelogoical site of the Palace of the Grand Master. 

The project is being implemented by the services of the Ministry of Education and Culture with resources from the Recovery and Resilience Fund, with a budget of 4,500,000 euros. 

Culture and Sports Minister, Lina Mendoni, affirmed her support for the project saying that the project of preserving the medieval city will benefit not only Rhodes, but Greece in general. 

“The medieval city of Rhodes is a huge comparative advantage for Rhodes, the Dodecanese, and Greece in general,” says the Minister. 

“Our goal is, with the integrated design, to highlight the archaeological site of ‘Perivola’, included in the UNESCO zone, and to connect the ancient building remains of the dock with the medieval gardens of the Castello, creating a new single timeless historical monumental core, in the medieval city.”
