Acropolis of Lindos

The ancient Acropolis of Lindos is built on a steep cliff 116 metres, and it constitutes a real balcony overlooking the sea. Visitors can admire the gallery of the Hellenistic period, the impressive Doric Temple of Athena Lindia, the Propylaea, the Byzantine church of St. John and the Headquarters of the Knights’ period. Unique is the relief trireme of the 2nd century BC which is carved in the rock, at the base of it. The  ancient citadel, was exploited not only by the ancient Greeks but also by the Romans, the Byzantines, St. John’s  Knights and finally by the Turks.The view from the Acropolis is magical, on one side is Lindos with its beach and on the other side is the bay of St. Paul, where according to tradition, the Apostle Paul came ashore in the year 57 AC.Getting around in Lindos can be done only on foot; however, for visitors to the Acropolis special routes on donkeys are organised. The journey takes approximately 10 minutes and only through the ancient path.
