Entrance to Grandmaster's Palace Rhodes

A picture of the entrance to the Grandmaster's Palace of the medieval city of Rhodes which once was the home of the Knights of St. John. The Knights withdrew from the city then under siege by the Turks. They were prepared to battle to the death of the last knight but in order to spare the lives of the citizens living there they agreed to surrender. The Knights went from there to Crete before settling in their new home on Malta.
