Village of Lindos, Lindos

4.5
A small town with a mix of rich history and sandy beaches, Village of Lindos was established by the Dorians about 3,000 years ago (though local legend claims the settlement was founded long before that by one of Zeus' divine sons). Although it contains an age-old acropolis, the town's main attraction remain its traditional whitewashed buildings and pedestrian-friendly backstreets. Pick up a free map at the tourist information center and take a self-guided tour through the narrow streets, lined by well-preserved medieval buildings and small taverns. Visiting beachgoers outnumber the town's tiny population in the morning, so wait to get some sand between your toes until afternoon, when tourist buses depart for the next destination. Make Village of Lindos a centerpiece of your Lindos vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lindos road trip planning tool .

    Cosy stroll among the winding alleys. But, all those souvenir shops. Stand up in your throat. Visited the restaurant Tambikio, by the sea. More romantic as it gets.

    Very pretty village or all the houses are white. The lanes are sometimes narrow but bright. The village is however on the hillside which makes his sports visit with children at an early age, especially if the heat is overwhelming. Don't panic as you can always breaks and you drink in one of the many bars or have use of excellent fresh squeezed orange juice.

    Great cafe, nice breeze and chilly music. We had the vegetarian baggute and the waitress was careful and let us know what had cheese or egg in it just in case. The guacamole is highly recommended!

    Very nice little café with green roof. The carrot cake can be recommended. Good but not daily fresh Baklava.
