History of Lindos
Lindos has an incredibly rich history; the 2 most popular excavation sites in Greece can be found here. According to Greek mythology, Lindos was founded by the son of King Belus. In ancient times, an acropolis was built on top of the hill with the Temple of Athena, the ruins of which can still be seen today. During this period, Lindos had an enormous naval force and was considered the strongest town on Rhodes. Thanks to maritime trade, the local economy was flourishing. In medieval times, Lindos was under the dominion of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and then the Ottoman Empire. They didn’t destroy the economy, so trading could go on unaffected. Today, it is mainly the acropolis, the archaeological sites and the beautiful coast that make Lindos attractive to tourists.
