  Lindos Akropolis

Lindos Akropolis
Akropolis rises far above Lindos, the only one of the three Antique towns in Rhodes that still exists as an active urban community.

On the top of Lindos Akropolis, there is an 88-metre-long marble colonnade and the remains of the beautiful Athena Lindias temple. It was built as early as the year 342 BC.
