Perched atop a rocky hill, Acropolis of Lindos represents natural citadel fortified over the centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and the Ottomans. Offering sweeping views of a small town's picturesque harbor, this important archaeological site contains remains of several ancient structures, the most notable of which is a Doric temple dedicated to the goddess Athena and dated to about 300 BCE. A monumental medieval wall surrounds this age-old temple and fortifications built by the Crusaders in the 14th century. The climb up to these ancient ruins can be quite arduous; you can make it a bit easier by arranging for a donkey ride up to the top.

Acropolis of Lindos Reviews
12 Euro entrance fee - worth it for the history and views. We missed the way up by steps and went left instead of right which took us up the easier sloped path ( the way the donkeys go) - much much ea... more »
Well preserved architectural ruins with a long uphill climb to view them. Comfortable walking shoes or trainers are recommended. Not suited for anyone who is not of an agile disposition. more »
Great view, but insane slippery stairs all the was up/down with no safety. Sad to find out after climbing hundreds of steps in hot weather with kids that entering the Acropolis had a €12 fee. We decided not to enter as the view all the way up was so amazing and we had driven all the way round and behind all the streets before that and seem pretty much the Acropolis from every angle and the pretty views too.
Beautiful old town overlooked by a classical castle ruins is reached by a steep winding road that stops traffic halfway & lets you wander through the narrow streets filled with all kinds of shops & bars a lot of the bars have rooftop restaurants where you can enjoy fantastic views well worth a visit you will never forget
