In the Acropolis of Lindos, that is as famous as the Acropolis of Athens, you can walk among ancient columns, see how the archaeologists work and touch history.
The Acropolis is located on a cliff 116 meters high. You can reach it by foot or rent a donkey. In the Acropolis of Lindos, the second largest Acropolis in Greece after the one in Athens, you will see how temples built over 2000 years ago and the fortresses of the Knights of the Order of St. John of the Middle Ages coexist in a rare symbiosis.
Acropolis is still being restored, here you can see the archaeologists at work, so during a visit, you can note how carefully they do their job.
Pearl of the Acropolis is Temple of Athena Linda. Besides the architectural attractions, you can find here an observation deck, where you can see the lagoon and the St. Paul's bay in the shape of a heart (it is believed that here landed the apostle Paul and begun to evangelise the inhabitants of Rhodes).
