Lindos Rhodes Island

Lindos will give you the feeling that you are walking into a painting - a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, small white houses climbing the hill to the Acropolis, breathtaking views from the cliff top, medieval walls, simple architecture, with wonderful black and white "chochlaki" pebbled floors and painted ceilings.
Add the lovely mélange of the Roman, Turk, Italian and Byzantine influence on the local traditions and behaviors, and you will understand why this charming village in Rhodes is so popular.
As Lindos is one of the national treasures of Greece, you have to leave your car behind its gates, rent a motorbike or, much common and easy, hail a donkey to explore the village streets.
Discover the highlight of Lindos - the ruin of the Acropolis, on the cliff top above the village. A natural fortress, it was fortified during the years by all the governors of Rhodes island.
Hide away of the heat under the enormous tree in the square-center, drink pure water from the nearby fountain and feel the dash of history on the ancient aqueducts in the surrounding area and on the old mansions dating back to the 16th century. Then continue your discovery and do not miss the Byzantine Church of Virgin Mary of Lindos with its impressive bell-tower, and the tiny chapel of Angios Paulos right next to the sea.
