 > LINDOS
LINDOS - Rodos Island
ll  
  GENERAL INFORMATION
 

Lindos is 55 Kilometers away from the capital city of Rhodes and is considered one of the most well-known tourist resorts of the island. Above the city of Lindos stands the acropolis, a natural fortress, fortified by all governors of the island as the years went by. This very fact, however, makes excavation in the area very difficult as well as drawing conclusions out of the findings.
Lindos was built by the Dorians who arrived in the island in the 10th century BC and had been a member of the Dorian Hexapolis. In the 8th century BC the flourishing of Lindos was obvious as it became a trading center between the Greeks and the Phoenicians, due to its geographical position.

In the modern settlement of Lindos one will be able to notice lots of things reminiscent of the period of the Knight’s rule in Rhodes. In the center of the village there is a square under a big tree and a drinking fountain. In the surrounding area you will be able to notice ruins of the ancient aqueducts, the traditional white-washed houses with the internal courtyards, as well as some old mansions dating back to the 16th century. Later on, during the 19th century, lots of neoclassical elements were incorporated on those houses such as big windows, pediments and tile-covered rooftops. In Lindos you will also have the chance to visit the Byzantine Church of Virgin Mary of Lindos with its remarkable bel-tower as well as tha little chapel of Agios Paulos right next to the sea. Lindos also offers lots of bars and clubs where you can entertain yourselves until the morning.
