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
comme je l'ai déjà indiqué, l'acropole est fermée la semaine. Nous avons grimpé jusqu'en haut pour rien...à part la vue. Et nous sommes descendus pied nu car le sol fait de dalles est très glissant. P... more »as I have already indicated, the Acropolis is closed the week. We climbed to the top for nothing... Apart from the view. And we went down bare foot because the floor made of tiles is very slippery. Anyone having problems walking refrain
We went with a guide who supplied audio headsets and explained the history well. Was mid 20s and off season, would not have been good if much hotter as many steps to the top. more »
Amazing place. Well worth the walk up to the top (please don't ride a donkey as too jot for them). €12 to enter but money well spent. The views are fantastic and there are lots of information posts on the restoration work being done and how it must have looked. Simply mind blowing. Walked down to beach but way too crowded. Spent the rest of my time and money at all the little shops in the village below and found some lovely souvenirs. Could easily go again.
Simply stunning! The highlight of my trip to Greece, I was absolutely mind blown by the beauty and history this place had to offer. Once you reach the top you are surrounded by postcard worthy dynamic panoramic 360 views of Lindos town, the Mediterranean Sea, Lindos beach and St. Paul’s bay. This is a must visit!
