Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on the island of Rhodes. Here the dramatic natural landscape is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the town built in a more recent past. You will find the most important archaeological monuments within the enclave of the Citadel (acropolis), although quite a number of interesting remains are scattered at various points within the town and in its immediacies.
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 also some towers along the medieval walls, which follow the natural contours of the high ground.
