Lindos

Many refer to it as the ''Kykladitissa of Rhodes''. Lindos, in the north east of the island and 50 Km from the center of Rhodes town, is built in the shape of an amphitheater and welcomes you to its white washed ''smile''.

Cars are not permitted to enter the town, so leave your vehicle in the public car park before the turning leading to the main square in Lindos and experience the beautiful and much photographed walkway.

The spotlessly clean narrow streets with impressive houses (these particular buildings have characteristic pebbled courtyards) invite you to lose yourselves and stay to enjoy the beautiful corners and images with colorful bougainvilleas, souvenir shops, island cafes and taverns.

Among the most important attractions include the famous Acropolis of Lindos with the ruins of the Temple of Athena Lindia, which was built in the 4th century BC, the headquarters of the Knights and the church of St. John. If you can not climb the steep streets leading up there, the friendly donkeys at the entrance to the town are willing to offer a picturesque and romantic ride.

Note that Lindos, together with Ialisos and Kameiro were the three ancient towns of the island.
