Mosque of Murad Reis & Cemetery

On the edge of the new town just past the Mandraki is the mosque of Murad Reis and the Turkish cemetery. The cemetery is a very charming area with its shady eucalyptus trees and run down feel. The famous admiral, or some would say pirate, head of the ships in Sulyeman the Magnificent's navy is buried in this little corner of Rhodes.

On the edge of the cemetery is a small unprepossessing building called The Villa Cleobus, where Lawrence Durrell wrote 'Reflections on a Marine Venus'.
