It is just a statue, gives nice photo opportunity. Located at middle of roundabout. While visiting Rhodes town you are passing it often, but don't give attention to it. Easy place to find, in front of Blue Sky hotel, so it is quite good meeting...More

We passed this while on a tour round Rhodes, but I don't think it would be worth a special trip just to see it. No sign explaining what it is - poor Diagoras was an Olympic boxing champion from Rhodes, as were his sons, apparently!.

This is a good monument to see at sunset, unfortunately it is plonked on a traffic island so not too easy to get close to. But well worth a few minutes to look & photo if you are in the area.

The landmark of the Island and of its capital. Beautifully located, by the Sea. Something to remember.
