Kamiros – Rhodes island
Kamiros (30 km Southwest of Rhodes-town) is one of the three major Doric cities that united in the 5th century BC to found the powerful city-state of Rhodes. Kamiros was largely a farming community with wine and oil as its main products.
The impressive remains are spread on a hillside with a view towards the sea.
Today, the oldest ruins of the city are dated from the Hellenistic Era. The ruins of the city include a market with a Dorian arch, the altar of an unknown god, a Doric temple and a square. On the top of the hill, you can see the acropolis, which was covered by a large northern arch (3rd century BC), built on a water-tank.
