lighthouse in the Mandraki port of Rhodes

This is a lighthouse I saw this summer
on the Greek island of Rhodes

It is built on top of the fortress
called Agios Nikolaos in the port of Mandraki

The fortress was built around 1460
by crusaders called the "Knights of Rhodes"
in order to protect the island from Ottoman invasion

and the light house was constructed around 1863 by the French

Location : Greece - Rhodes
