What To Expect

Village of Lindos
Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on Rhodes. The dramatic natural landscape is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the more modern town, with the Lindos Acropolis rising dominantly on a steep cliff at 116 m height like a sovereign podium overlooking the sea, framed by mighty fortress walls.

The Church of the Panagia
Just off the main square in Lindos, this cross-shaped 14th century church has an octagonal dome and whitewashed walls. Its dark interior, with a black and white pebbled floor, is decorated with eighteenth-century frescoes of male saints on the right and female on the left. An inscription notes that additions were made to the building in 1489-90.

Acropolis of Lindos
On the summit of the Lindos Acropolis are the ruins of the goddess Athena Lindia, temples from the 4th century BC As well as the Propylaea, the great Hellenistic Stoa and the Byzantine chapel of Saint John. In the time of the Knights of St. John, the castle is surrounded by sturdier fortress walls while the flowering period of Lindos extends as a naval power up to the 19th century.

According to myth, the cult of Athena Lindia was pre-Hellenic, although this is not borne out by the sporadic excavation finds. The history of the sanctuary begins in the Geometric period (9th c. BC). In the Archaoc period the tyrant of Lindos, Kleoboulos, revived the cult and built a temple, probably on the site of an earlier one. The Archaic temple had the same Doric tetrastyle amphiprostyle plan as the subsequent one.

I wish I could come here more times, this place has an amazing, unbeliavle view. You can see whole Lindos from up there.
The place is safe, there is security guide who does not allow you to go so close to the perem.
You can buy your ticket until 19h and stay there up to 20h. The prices is 12€ / person.
Worth the walk
Quinton1970, 18-09-2019
Steep climb to the top but worth it. Was worried about the site due to other reviews I had read but was glad I visited this site, some early nineteenth century rebuilds but not enough to spoil the site as a whole, can be a bit tricky underfoot so some caution needed, amazing views from the top. Worth the trek and €12 entry. Bar not open outside the gate so would advise take a drink. A must if you are in rhodes
Unbelievable Views and Ruins

What an amazing private tour. There were 4 of us and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had an air conditioned van that took us right to the entrance and she walked up with us explaining every little detail. We had been there before, but on our own, so having her explain all of the history and background was amazing. A must while in Rhodes.
Great guide - tremendous local...

Great guide - tremendous local knowledge and fantastic English. Went during offseason so not much happening at the village but there were no crowds and the acropolis was fascinating.
