Today we will dock a Rhodes, known as the beautiful "Island of Roses."  This island has been  occupied by many different cultures, and we will learn about its rich and varied history.  On a hill above the charming town of Lindos rises an ancient acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena.  Below lies the Bay of St. Paul, where the apostle landed during his voyages.  The crusading Knights of St. John fought valiantly to maintain control of Rhodes but were forced to leave the island when they were defeated by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in 1523.  The Ottoman Turks occupied Rhodes for 400 years, leaving mosques, minarets, and a Turkish bath to mark their presence.
