Description

Dazzling white washed houses nestle on a hillside overlooking a curving bay on crystal clear water and golden sandy beach. Above the neatly dusted, whitewashed village, rising to some 400 feet is a flat topped rock formation which is adorned with the magnificent ancient Acropolis. From the vantage point of the Acropolis, the view of this picturesque village and its surrounding bays with the ancient pillars of Lindian Athena towering above, is at the very least breathtaking. Lindos has approximately 1000 inhabitants and is probably the most famous village in Greece.
