The first indications of construction are after the earthquake of 515 AD, when the fortification of the old town began to build. Most of today’s form and character is due to the occupation of the Knights of St. John, who arrived in 1309 and were settled on the island for 200 years.
Afterwards in 1522 the Old Town faced a critical point in its history; it was conquered by the Turks. Life changed completely in the Medieval town, churches were transformed to Mosques, minarets were constructed, changing the skyline of the city, many public baths started to being built. Moreover, it was prohibited to the previous settlers to live inside the walls and they were only allowed to work until the dusk. Afterwards they were commanded to exit and the gates closed.
During their settlement, the majority of the remarkable public buildings and landmarks were built. They constructed the picturesque moat, bridges, gates, temples of worship and public use buildings. During this particular period the Old town was divided into two parts the Collachium and the Bourg. The first part was the house of the Knights and the Administration. The latter, is where the native population constituted of Greeks, Jews and Latins lived.
In 1922, the Old Town was introduced to its new settlers the Italians. During the period of the Italian occupation the life in the Old town and at the whole island in general, was improved completely. Under the occupation of the Ottomans, the outskirts of the walls were vast graveyards and the Old town was damaged seriously and was full of ruins. But, with careful planning and strategical design, the quality of space began to improve. The walls were restored, new gates were opened to link the old town with new city, landmarks were refurbished and public parks and green areas were created.
Today the old town maintains this multicultural identity and is a dynamic and vivid cell of the island. It is recognized as an Unesco world Heritage site.
