Village of Lindos, Lindos

4.3
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 .

  • I've been to this town 3 times, just an amazing place! In the labyrinths of these narrow streets you want to get lost. Somewhere from 12.00-16.00, the streets are like a preheated oven, despite the fact that most are in the shade, still very hot and stuffy. But after 16.00, you can safely enjoy all the beauty. It is impossible not to fall in love! There are two beaches: in the bay there is a pebble sunset, but picturesque and the second sandy with a smooth sunset.

  • Beautiful village made up of all white houses facing the sea. The landscape is truly characteristic because the village is located between the sea and a hill where the acropolis is located. The typical terrace bars are also characteristic from where you can admire the entire landscape. Tourists are the masters! Unmissable!
