Lindos is a medieval village. It has only seven hundred inhabitants, greatly outnumbered by tourists in the high season. On top of the town rises the majestic Acropolis, well, the ruins of it!
Lindos has many historic houses (known as "Captains" houses) often dating from 16th, 17th or 18th century. The village itself is situated on a network of cobbled streets - all of which are entirely pedestrianised. The only modes of transport possible are donkeys and mopeds.
The houses are small and whitewashed. And the charm of this village is maintained by a preservation order which forbids any unauthorised building work to change it. (info; Wikitravel).
I was a late bloomer when it comes to traveling. My first trip was to Malorca when I was 10, followed up by my au-pair year in Scotland at 19. From 2002 I have been bitten by the travel bug and I now spend several weeks out of the country each year. I have reached 35 countries now and on this blog I share pictures and stories from my travels. Enjoy and welcome to my world:-)
