There are plan in the pipeline for the creation of an archaeological park aiming to promote Rhodes’ Acropolis, said South Aegean Region Prefect George Hadjimarkos this week.

Considered to be the island’s most important landmark, the Acropolis of Rhodes dates back to Classical times (5th–3rd century BC) and is located about three kilometers from the Dodecanese island’s capital.

It will apparently undergo restoration work and will be equipped with the latest technology. The project will be funded with 1.6 million euros under the “South Aegean 2014-2020” Operational Program.

The restoration project includes the creation of an archaeological park complete with the site’s most important monuments, a museum, archival material as well as special archaeological routes, which will hopefully attract more visitors to the island by offering an enhanced cultural experience.
