The Church of the Panagia, Lindos
(4.6/5 based on 300 reviews on the web)
Tour The Church of the Panagia to immerse yourself in the island's rich religious and architectural history. Encircled by high walls, the small church was first built in 1300 but has undergone a series of reconstructions and renovations throughout the ages. From the courtyard you can admire the building's tall campanile tower typical of churches in Rhodes, before entering to glimpse the colorful frescoes, wooden iconostasis, and chandeliers. While your eyes may be distracted by the elaborately painted ceiling, make sure to glance downwards to appreciate traditional Rhodian flooring, featuring impressive pebble mosaic work. Please note that photos of the attraction's interior are strictly prohibited. Plan to see The Church of the Panagia and other attractions that appeal to you using our Lindos trip builder.

  • The Church is very small and is at the pass easily overlooked. That's too bad, because the Interior has it all and to be missed definitely. The decoration of the Church is simply phenomenal. It's worth also to be pointed out by the "door woman" in somewhat rough manner on uncovered knees. Photography is not allowed. It is connected to a small museum.
