Guide for One Day Trip to Lindos

Lindos is a village of Cycladic architecture located on the island of Rhodes.

Although the number of local residents is very small, tourists from various parts

of the world flock here during the summer, impressed by the scenery, from one of

the whitewashed sugar cube-shaped houses, known as “captain’s houses” and from the

another of the pristine turquoise sea bay.

Although it is a medieval town connected by pedestrian streets with cobbled streets

built between the 13th and 16th centuries, it hosts many tourist accommodations due

to the special beauty that this place offers.

Legend has it that Lindos was founded by one of the god sons of Zeus, and dates

back historically to 1000 BC, when it was founded by the Dorians. The architecture

of the village combined with the natural beauty of the surrounding area, make this

place a busy tourist center, especially during the summer months.
