The Church of the Panagia, Lindos

4.6
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.

  • Well worth the two euro entrance fee. Stunning little building. Authentic greek spiritual music playing.  more »

  • This church is easy to find. If you are walking along the "main strip" from the south, the church is at the only tee junction you'll reach. You'll only spend 10 mins here, but it is worth the entrance...  more »
