They remained there for 2 centuries and built into one of the most fortified cities in Europe. The citadel of Rhodes, is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe which in 1988 was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1912 Italian troops took the island over with the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, and established an Italian colony which lasted until the end of WWII. The Italians would later demolish the houses that were built on and around the city walls during the Ottoman era. They also reconstructed the Grand Master's Palace. Lyndos is about 55 km south of the town of Rhodes and its fine beaches make it a popular tourist and holiday destination. less

Although none of the synoptic gospels records the event, mainstream Christian tradition holds that this is the first public miracle of Jesus.However in John's gospel it has considerable symbolic importance: it is the first of the seven miraculous "signs" by which Jesus's divine status is attested, and around which the gospel is structured. It is still a matter of discussion among theologians whether the story talks of an actual material transformation of water into wine, or is a spiritual allegory. The commemoration of the miracle of the wine is traditionally fixed at Kefer-Kenna (also known as Kefr Kana and Kfar-Cana), about 5km north-east of Nazareth on the road to Tiberias. Here the Franciscans, relying on the testimony of early pilgrims including St Jerome, established themselves in 1641. And here streetside vendors sell Cana wine. The Franciscan Church at Cana was built in the early 1900. less

The Hotel was built on a hilltop on the plan of the ancient masseries, the old apulian farmhouses as a comfortable 4 star resort, a few steps from one of the most pristine seas in Italy. Like the old farmhouses it has its own orchard where seasonal fruits and vegetables are grown for its kitchen. Their family restaurant on the beach right below the hotel is a hot spot and serves the freshest local sea food. From San Gregorio one can hire a boat to ride along the coastline which is dotted with Paleolithic caves and endless coves for bathing. The trip continues to Leuca and its lighthouse. This is the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Ionian sea and the Adriatic sea meet. If one is in the mood for culture the city Lecce is very close by. This is a jewel of a baroque city with dramatic architecture and a lively scene. Highly recommended. 73053 Loc.
