The Church of the Panagia, Lindos

4.7
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.

  • Located in the Centre of Lindos and is of 14th century with octagonal Dome, whitewashed walls and roof keramidenia. Very beautiful and distinctive Bell Tower and rich collection of ecclesiastical Museum exhibits. Impressive flooring of white and black pebbles, wood-carved iconostasis and nice murals certainly steal the attention of visitors.
