Lindos attracts many tourists since it is built in a beautiful bay, with amazing beaches, and a great view to a small fishing village called Haraki.

The acropolis of Lindos is situated above the modern town and it is a fortress which was strengthened against attacks successively by the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantine, the knights of St. John and the Ottomans.

Therefore, it is difficult to excavate and analyze it archaeologically. One can enjoy spectacular views of the close by harbors and seashore.

History

King Tlepolemus of Rhodes came to the island about in the 10th century BC and founded the city. Lindos was known as the Dorian Hexapolis, one of the six Dorian cities and due to Rhodes location, it was a natural meeting place between the Greeks and the Phoenicians, resulting in its major growth. In the late 5th century the city of Rhodes was founded and the importance of Lindos declined.

The temple of Athena Lindia was finally formed in around 300 BC and during classical times it dominated the acropolis. More buildings were added in the Hellenistic and Roman period to the temple, but these buildings were not used during the medieval period. In the 14th century, though, the Knights of St. John reformed the temple into a fortress in order to defend the island against the Ottomans.

After his ship-wreck in Lindos, Apostole Paul founded tha Rhodian church and named Lindos’ bay after him.

Nowadays one can see on the acropolis parts of the following Buildings:

The Doric Temple of Athena Lindia,
The Propylaea of the Sanctuary
The Hellenistic stoa
The well-known relief of a Rhodian trireme (warship) cut into the rock at the foot of the steps leading to the acropolis.
The Hellenistic staircase
Remains of a Roman temple
The Acropolis
The Castle of the Knights of St John
The Greek Orthodox Church of St John

In Lindos some scenes of the film The Guns of Navarone were filmed.

The municipality of Lindos consists of Lindos town and the villages of Kalathos, Pylona, Lardos and Laerma.

Visitors can be impressed from the town’s traditional elements such as the white houses, the ship-owners’ mansions, the Byzantine churches and the cobbled alleys.

There is an amazing main beach and the bay of Lindos with Mediterranean blue crystal clear waters, where you can enjoy a relaxing swim or water sports.

In the town of Lindos there are many shops, Greek taverns, restaurants and night clubs where you can have an excellent time.
