Photographer's Note

Lindos on the Greek Island of Rhodes. Lindos is a very popular but fairly ancient town built beneath the towering rock topped by the world famous Lindos Acropolis.

It has a very unique atmosphere which simply doesn't exist elsewhere. If you visit Rhodes for a holiday, where-ever you stay on the Island, you simply have to visit Lindos. If you are staying in Lindos itself, you are very lucky indeed.

Lindos is one of the national treasures of Greece; hotels are not allowed to be built in Lindos, and cars are not allowed in Lindos too, so the narrow streets remain vehicle free, (apart from a few special narrow delivery vans).

Lindos is a maze of little alleys with shops, bars and restaurants mixed with medieval walls, simple architecture, with wonderful black and white "chochlaki" pebbled floors and painted ceilings. You'll notice the historic influence of Roman, Turk, Italian and Byzantine rulers.

Where is Lindos?
Lindos is on the East coast of the Greek Island of Rhodes. Rhodes is one of the Dodecanese islands in the southeast part of the Aegean Sea.
