The Nea Agorà is the modern part of the capital. Modern Rhodes stages a parade of buildings facing the sea: the grandeur and the strict lines visually recall the period of Italian sovereignty over the island. The first thing you notice here is a very animated: the Nea Agora beating heart is represented by Mercato Nuovo, once a market of fish, today a lively crowded bazaar of shops and restaurants. Shaded by domes and terraces, the pedestrianized center is the right place to buy a souvenir, but also for some authentic goodness of place. Architecturally, one of the most representative buildings of Nea Agora there are the City Hall, the Post Office building and the Annunciation Cathedral with its square bell tower.
