One of the most impressive villages of Rhodes, Lindos, is considered to be a jewel of beauty and history on the island. It lies on the east coast of the island and is about 48 km south of the town of Rhodes.
Being one of the main attractions in Rhodes, Lindos is a picturesque village with narrow paved alleys between small whitewashed buildings. The only way of transport possible is by donkeys, since all the streets are vehicle-free. Time and change have not touched Lindos as its authenticity is maintained by a preservation order and status as a national landmark.
The village is situated in a large horseshoe shaped bay and its little houses surround the grand citadel that lies on top of the hill, whilst the beach below is an enchanting crescent of golden sand and clear blue waters. Due to the occupation of the island by the Romans, the Byzantines, the Turks and the Italians, the village is multicultured collage of people and characteristics, a unique combination that affects every aspect of Lindos.
Lindos village, retaining its original traditional character and charm, is a popular destination that no one should miss while visiting Rhodes!
