In Ruins

In the west neighborhood of the picturesque village of Koskinou, south of the city of Rhodes, are the ruins of a small castle. Its remnants are amongst houses, scattered in various places.

We do not know the history of the castle and there are no historical records about it. It does not belong to the Knights’ period.

The place was inhabited since the classical period as well is in the Byzantine period. The castle existed at least since the 13th century and maybe from earlier times.

It was never a strong castle. Probably this was a small settlement with some fortification, that later became part of the medieval and the modern village.
