Rhodes Malona

A quite large village that has been built in the overgrown with olive, orange, mandarin orange, walnut and cypress tree valley of Ethonas –one of the wealthiest agricultural areas of Rhodes. Malona’s hamlet is the seaside Charaki, a former fishing village that has grown into a tourist resort. At its end, on a big rock in the sea, stands the Byzantine Feraklos (or Faraklos) castle, which was the first one to be occupied by the Knights in September 1306. This was the summer house of the Master Orsini and here was Amurat, son of the deposed Ottoman Sultan Djem, hosted. The castle is accessible through a path and stairs.
