Acropolis of rhodes was situated on the tallest place of Rhodes. It was a monumental zone, a place for worshiping, sanctuaries, subterranean areas and subterranean places for worshiping the gods.

The buildings were constructed gradually in different levels above opened and flat places and were held from sftronf walls. The spirit of the hellenistic architecture in Acropolis of Rhodes is reflected perfectly with the combination of natural beauty and artificial intervension. The monuments of Acropolis are since the hellenistic and post hellenistic period (3rd century -2nd century b.c.)
 

The excavations that were done from the Italian arcaheologic school during 1912-1945. The hellenic Archaeologic Service from 1946 and afterwards did a lot of excavations that helped in the identification of the area. Acropolis has not been excavated yet. There is an area of 1250 that Rhodians are not allowed to built in order the archaeological service to continue the excavations. Excavations stopped in 1946 and have never been started again.

A number of important errections have been done from the Italians according to the spirit of that period. Since 1945 and then after the departure of Italians everything remained the same.
