In Mandraki, the old port of Rhodes, there are two columns at the entrance topped by two bronze deer statues. They are one of the most famous and photographed sights of Rhodes, but also a symbol of the island. According to the tradition, they were brought there by the crusaders and it is believed that the Colossus of Rhodes used to rest on the spot where the pillars are located.
