Nestling at the foot of a steep rock and beautifully surrounded by the sea lies the traditional settlement of Líndos; on the top of the same rock stands a centuries-old acropolis, proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The acropolis bears silent witness to Líndos’ glorious past, a major naval power of ancient times which reputedly had a population of 17,000. The landscape of Líndos encapsulates the essence of Rhodes: a surprisingly felicitous blend of ancient and medieval! With 600,000 visitors annually, Líndos competes with Delphi as the second most visited archeological site in Greece. Enjoy it!
According to tradition the temple of Athena on the acropolis was founded by Danaus, who came to the island with his 50 daughters to escape the rage of the goddess Hera. Follow the same ancient path that the ancient Rhodians took. When you reach the acropolis you will see a 280 BC relief of a Rhodian Trireme (ancient Greek warship) carved into the rock, an indication of the naval power of ancient Rhodes. On the bow of the Trireme stood a statue of General Agesander, sculpted by Pythokritos. Did you know that the first naval code, the famous “Rhodian Naval Code”, a code of international law and one of the most important legal documents in the world was written here in Rhodes? The emperor Antonio wrote of the Rhodian Naval Code: We may rule the world but the Rhodian Code rules the seas!
Through an ancient old gate you enter the world of the magnificent acropolis; on the first level you can see more recent buildings like the 1317 Castle of the Knights of St John, which was built on the foundations of an older Byzantine fortification. There is also the Greek Orthodox Church of St John, built on the ruins of an older church. The Knights significantly strengthened the fortifications of the acropolis, turning Líndos into a powerful fortified castle.
Rhodes is located in the eastern Aegean Sea and, at 1,408 square kilometers, is the largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands. Rhodes is considered the sunniest of the Greek islands and was assigned to the sun god Helios in ancient times. Nevertheless, the island is green and densely forested in places. Fine sandy beaches, picturesque bays and the ancient heritage make Rhodes a vacation paradise. No wonder that Rhodes is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece: party life, romantic bays and ancient culture - none of this is mutually exclusive on the island!
#providence, Rhode Island might not be the first thought that comes to mind when you thing the words vacation. However, this is a nice little New England Town that's located basically between New York City and Boston. If you're spending time in the Northeast, this is a good place to check out. You can enjoy the many bars and restaurants downtown near the State Capitol Building.
