Lindos: a magnificent acropolis on a imposing rock

Nestling at the foot of a steep rock and beautifully surrounded by the sea lies the traditional settlement of Líndos.

on the top of the same rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Líndos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000.

The landscape of Líndos encapsulates the essence of Rhodes: a surprisingly felicitous blend of ancient and medieval! With 600,000 visitors annually, Líndos competes with Delphi as the second most visited archeological site in Greece.
