RHODES – KOS – Mandraki Harbour

Across the street from the New Market is the harbour called Mandraki distinguished from the outer harbour by the 3 windmills and the fortifications at the end of the dock. Mandraki harbour was the military port of the Mediterranean island of Rhodes for almost 2.500 years, its mouth could be shut off by chains. Now the mouth is adorned by statues of a male and female deer ( Elafos and Elafina) symbols of the island – which stand on columns. These statues were built by the Italians and symbolize the actual deer they brought to Rhodes. to get the island rid of snakes. Mandraki is used by boats which leave there every day for short cruises to nearby islands and to bathing places on Rhodes.
