Beautiful square, lots of people from all over the world. Charming stores. Close to this square there is the Holocaust Memorial in memory of the Jews of Rhodes and Kos who were murdered in the Holocaust. From the square you can access the nearby synagogue.

Beautiful place and well worth a visit when in the old town but slightly ruined by the profusion of expensive but naff restaurants and their very pushy touts trying to get you to eat/drink in their overpriced establishments.

Full of touts in their vulgar manner try to inveigle the 'lost' tourist off the cruise, to part with their money! There are better places to people watch. However good to stop for a gelato. Full of shops. Too crowded. Fountain is a good place...More

Plateia Ippokratous (Hippocrates Square) is THE focal point for all tourist activity in the Old Town. It *is* atmospheric and without the crowds could even be called pretty, but it is over-subscribed to. It is a confusing jungle of 'Greek Steak Houses', pizzerias and pasta...More

I say run because the restaurants around the Platia are manned by some seriously talented people who are trying to get you into the various establishments. Watching the guys is a lesson in not ever giving up, we had a ball simply sitting on the...More

The only remaining evidence of the Castellania, within this UNESCO World Heritage Site....but you will be pressed to find it, as the entire focus is to get you on you jaunt down Sokratous Street, the most commercial street on the island.
