Kallithea of Rhodes

The hot springs of Kallithea Baths in Rhodes is known since antiquity for its beneficial health red water that gushes from the rocks. Although not longer used, the visitors can admire the glamour of the magnificent Baths built by the Italians. Outside the high season, this is the favorite spot for local people looking for a quick swim. Most of the building are newly renovated and when i visited them some parts were under construction.

Old town of Rhodes (Spring)

Some days ago i visited the old town of Rhodes again. The weather was perfect so i decided to take some pictures before the tourists arrived. These pictures taken around April.

 Old town: a merge of old building and new technology, but the result is not always beautiful.

A contrast of new and old building inside the old town. The window and the building in the center is in bad shape. In contrast the building on the right is newly renovated and although the owner used stone you can see the difference. Note also the road, the local authorities didn't have the money to fully repair it.
