Through history, Lindos has inspired its inhabitants to reach incredible heights. Today, you can stand where the ancients and knights of Rhodes once did and be inspired in exactly the same way.
No visit to Rhodes is complete without exploring Lindos. Not just because of the 3rd century BC acropolis perched on its hilltop, or the medieval fortifications that continue to give the site the gravitas it deserves. Or even because of the sugar-cubed houses and labyrinth of alleyways of the town just below.
It’s because climbing to the temple, 116m above sea level, is to follow exactly the same path as the ancients and knights that once used Lindos as a place of worship and defence. That incredible vista of the Aegean Sea and St Paul’s Bay … They’re the same views that inspired them.
Make sure you make a day of it. The archaeological site; the shops, cafes and restaurants in the town; and the beaches that you can pick out from the temple will reward you for it. And to top it all, there’s a different aura to each hour of the day, with evening bringing the most magical light to accompany a rooftop terrace dinner in town.
