According to Greek mythology, the island of Rhodes was a gift from the gods.

Jupiter presented nymph Rhodes to his son Apollo, god of the sun as his wife. That is why Rhodes is called the Island of the Sun. It is said that the god of hospitality chose Rhodes as his eternal home, which perhaps explains why the Rhodian hospitality is legendary, making the guests feel safe and welcome.
