The Acropolis

A holiday to Lindos wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the ancient Acropolis, built on a hill top 100 metres above the main village. Gently work your way up the winding cobbled streets and climb the steps to reach the top. From here you can explore the ruins, learn about the local history and take in the magnificent views of Lindos village below.

Make the most of your time away from the bustling streets below and enjoy the sweeping views of the Bay of St Paul. Be sure to have your camera ready to capture the sights of the ruined Byzantine fortress and the 4th century Temple of Athena. Whilst you’re up at the top, you need to visit the ruins of the Castle of the Knights of St John that was built in the 14th century too.

It may be a long way up to the top, but once you reach it, the incredible views make the walk worth it. Plus you can always ride a donkey; the so-called Lindos taxi, back down to the bottom.
