The Palace of the Grand Masters of the Knights of St. John in rhodes is an impressive building, looking like a miniature castle, three stories high, with crenellated towers, but the tour guide said it was a modern reconstruction.
Apparently the original palace blew up when lightning hit a nearby ammunition dump in the 1800s, and the Italians who occupied Rhodos in the 1930s reconstructed the palace from old engravings but without the aid of blueprints, in hopes that Mussolini might want the castle as a summer home.
So, the façade is faithful to the original building, but the interior was built to suit the imagined needs of the Italian dictator. Today, it's a museum chronicling the city's Crusader past.
