Lindos

Distance from Rhodes City: 49Km Add your review about Lindos

Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on Rhodes. Here the dramatic natural landscape is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the more modern town. You will find the most important archaeological monuments at the acropolis, but interesting ruins are scattered at various points within the town and just outside it as well.

A road leads high up to the acropolis, and if you wish to avoid the tiring climb you can hire a donkey at the entrance of the town. The medieval walls are the first ruins you will encounter, fortifications built by the Crusaders (early 14th century) on the remains of earlier defenses, both Byzantine and ancient. There are a few of towers along the medieval walls, which follow the natural contours of the high ground.
