Unlike other countries, many other fortifications we see in Greece today are
very old as they were built during the height of Ancient Greece.
Besides the ancient fortifications, Greece has many type of castles ranging
from medieval crusader castles like Chlemoutsi to castles built by the Venetians like the ones
at Palamidi or Platamon.
The Greek islands also have some magnificent buildings. Worth mentioning is
the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, located in the island of Rhodes.
