small and beautiful. easy to find - on the main street - look for the tower. no photos inside, but you can take some sneaky ones when no one is looking. lovely court yard out the back so venture out.

This stunning little church in the centre of Lindos is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen. The artwork inside the church is divine. You are able to light a candle for lost loved ones in rememberence. Such a shame some people ignore the requests to not do flash photography inside it.

Admire the painted walls and images inside, and the peace and tranquility away from the bustle outside.

A really pretty stunning little church with the most amazing painting on the walls and ceilings. If you are not wearing enough modest clothing, the lady at the door will give you a sarong to wear

We discovered this church by coincidence. It was hidden behind a little door and once you step inside it was simply amazing. Decorated from top to bottom with beautiful paintings and carvings. A must see when in Lindos. They have scarves that you can borrow if you are not properly dressed. Just to cover up bare shoulders, belly or legs... More

It doesn't look like much from outside at all. In fact, we walked past it several times without realising what it was. When you're inside, it's a completely different story. The artwork is spectacular; there isn't a square inch that isn't covered. I could have stayed in here all day quite easily. It's a hidden gem. It's nothing like any... More

Magnificent white church, with stunning religious painting all over the inside. Note you'll need to borrow a sarong for modesty if you're wearing shorts. Definitely must visit
