Outer Gate--Gate of St. John--Fortress of Rhodes 1309 -1522

The outer gate leading to the bulwark at the Gate of St. John, at the Post of Provence.  A course of double moulding separating the upper vertical part of the wall from the lower widening one is a characteristic of Pierre d'Aubusson's work.  The Grand Masters coat of arms can seen above the gatealongside that of the Order of St. John and a relief of St. John the Baptist
