This is the main square in Lindos with its central tree where people like to shade in its large branches. I noticed the wall around it was not just for people to sit on but also aided locals to get on their donkeys!
It mains a good meeting place as the small taxi rank and the bus stop is here - motor traffic is not allowed in the village itself - besides which it would have a job with the streets being only just wide enough for a donkey. Enjoy the views across the bay from here too.
Be respectfull when visiting the church and have your shoulders covered - you will be given a scarf for this if you come unprepared. Photography is not really allowed but I sneaked a couple of pics when there was no one else inside. Seen here is the Bishops chair which is very ornately carved in wood and some of the frescoes which can be seen - more in the travelogue below.
At the top level of the acropolis is the reconstructed Temple of Lindian Athena. According to an ancient myth the first temple was the work of Danaos while the temple whose ruins are seeen now was built in the middle of the 4th century B.C Much restoration work was done by the italians in the 20th century but frustating more restoration is on going and scaffolding and cranes are bound to intrude on your photos. The temple is right on the edge of the cliff which has a drop of some 400 feet to the sea below.
St Paul's Church
A tiny chapel is situated to the side of St Pauls Bay.
An idyllic location and thus has become a popular choice for foreigners wishing to get married out here.
We didn't see a wedding take place but there was evidence of confeti all around the ground and there was abig party going on in the sqaure of Lindos - so perhaps we had just missed it.
I went to Lindos when i was younger, along with my parents and sister
I remember it being hot, sunny with great restaurants and generally a nice package holiday place, maybe I`ll go back there one day...
