The International Medieval Festival of Rhodes is currently underway on this island every Saturday and/or Sunday until July 3. During the festival, the history, traditions and legends of Medieval Rhodes are being revived through workshops and games.

The festival features events such as an art exhibition titled Dodecanesian Artists portray the Middle Ages of Rhodes, a horseback riding knights’ show and the Chase of the Dragon, a fascinating team-game for the quest of the legendary dragon of Rhodes. On June 18, the Estonian ensemble Hortus Musicus directed by maestro Andres Mustonen will give a concert of Medieval and Baroque music at the Sound & Light garden.
Organised by the non-governmental and non-profit cultural organisation The Medieval Rose, the festival, by taking advantage of the magnificent scenery of the Medieval City of Rhodes – one of UNESCO’s World Heritage monuments – aims to carry the visitors on a cultural journey back to the dreamy world of the Middle Ages.
