Having read a description of Lawrence Durrell's stay in Rhodes (1945-47) in his "Reflections on a Marine Venus", which included scenes of him living in a little villa in the old Turkish Cemetery of Murat Reis, I set out to see if I could find the site.

The turkish cemetery and mosque are not often visited and the entrance is through the blue door at seaside. Entrance is free and you enter through the garden of the house of the custodian. This monument of the turkish occupation is interesting and romantic because it is not in use anymore. The stone "Taliban"indicates the husband and the undecorated stone... More
