Lindos is the most attractive village at the island of Rhodes, with its famous Acropolis (entrance fees paid on spot), the traditional architecture and the decoration if the typical village houses, its beautiful beach and the picturesque port of Agios Pavlos, where Saint Paul was detained on this way to Rome and blessed the people in 53BC.
You can reach the Acropolis on foot where we can visit the Stoa, which was restored as the Temple of Athena Lindia of IV BC.

The statue was located at the entrance of the port; the one foot was stepping on the one side of the entrance while the other foot on the other side, and the boats were floating between the legs.
