Mandraki Harbor Rhodes

The Mandraki was the military harbour and was guarded by a tower built between 1464 and 1467 by the Grand Master Zacosta. After the first Turkish siege of Rhodes in 1480 and the successful defense by the Knights of St. John, the Grand Master d'Aubusson added a bastion around the tower transforming it into a guard fortress on the sea.
