Beautiful little church in Lindos. The ceiling is amazing. Shame that most of the visitors took no notice of the lady trying to keep order and asking that no one took photos.

I remembered this church from my previous visit over 40 years ago and it was a joy to revisit it. Don't forget to look for the image of St Christopher with a dog's head. A beautiful and historic little church with some amazing frescoes.

We stumbled upon the church as we strolled the village. A sparkling jewel! An oasis of calm, reflective coolness with glittering icons and silver everywhere. Beautiful

Must see little Byzantine church in Lindos... Stunning inside and out. Remember to say hello to the charming lady who sits at the entrance and cover up out of respect.

Lovely little church right in the heart of Lindos. What a shame people can't or won't read as it clearly said no photos, which was ignored.

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.
