Lindos town is 50 km southeast of Rhodes town and boasts a population of only 1,000 people (in ancient times, 50,000). It is home to the famous Acropolis of Lindos which was built prior to the Athenian Acropolis by some three hundred years. The village itself, full of decorative white pebble tiny alleyways, stairs, cafes, homes, churches, rests below the Acropolis, safely protected and built in an amphitheatre-style design.
It has winding narrow streets, with designs of white and black pebble art, that snake through the town. It also lies adjacent to one of the most enticing beaches in all of Greece. Declared as a monument for preservation, (awarded the Blue Flag designation), it has maintained its tradition and style while still luring millions of visitors from all over the world. It is definitely a one-of-a type town and one of most beautiful villages in all of Greece.
