Photographer's Note

At the end pier of Mandraki harbour stands the fort of St Nicholas. This was built in the 15th century as additional defence against the Turks. but is now used as a lighthouse. Inside there is a chapel dedicated to St Nicholas who is the Orthodox patron saint of sailors. Its free entery to go in to the small museum here - something we didn't get round to this time. We just enjoyed the walk over here for the views back to the new town.

Around Mandraki harbor, are a number of monumental government buildings built by the Italians before World War II, the Murad Reis Mosque by the beach, and the National Theater. Two statues of deer at the supposed location of the ancient Colossus of Rhodes frame the entrance to the Mandraki harbor that is guarded by the charming fort of Saint Nicholas that doubled as a lighthouse.
