Village of Lindos, Lindos

4.4
A small town with a mix of rich history and sandy beaches, Village of Lindos was established by the Dorians about 3,000 years ago (though local legend claims the settlement was founded long before that by one of Zeus' divine sons). Although it contains an age-old acropolis, the town's main attraction remain its traditional whitewashed buildings and pedestrian-friendly backstreets. Pick up a free map at the tourist information center and take a self-guided tour through the narrow streets, lined by well-preserved medieval buildings and small taverns. Visiting beachgoers outnumber the town's tiny population in the morning, so wait to get some sand between your toes until afternoon, when tourist buses depart for the next destination. Make Village of Lindos a centerpiece of your Lindos vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lindos road trip planning tool .

  • second visit here. Seems a bit quaint at first but all a bit tacky. Lots of shops selling the same tacky souvenirs. Smelly donkeys everywhere.  more »
  • Lindos - approx. 55 km away from Rhodes town - belongs to the "duty"program of all tourists on Rhodes. Through the narrow streets of the small town of Lindos my sons and I are gone through just to get to the Acropolis of Lindos, because that is really worth seeing. The small town looks from above very aschön, also the many, small, narrow streets, only from 10: 00 are nice, when the tourist buses and dimensions, it is not so nice, too narrow and too loud. So very early here his or quite late. Otherwise a worth visit, especially because of the Acropolis, this I write a review with many pictures including the "Acropolis of Lindos" here on TripAdvisor.
