It had rectangular bulwarks and two massive towers. Its only gate leads to the south-east corner tower. Two construction stages can be distinguished. Inside the castle there are preserved ruins of buildings and two tanks. This is the place where a significant inscription dated 1473 and referring to the activity of Roman Catholic priests in the area comes from.
The castle is easily accessible, and a number of signs direct the visitors all over the route on the winding mountain. It is also easily seen from the valley below and the main road. If you are there by car, just follow the signs and make sure you park your vehicle in the designated parking area.
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.
