Some wonderful paintings

This was a stunning find in Lindos Village. The church is serene despite lots of visitors. Would have loved some explanations of the astonishing frescos.

A nice quick stop on the way if you're around Lindos. We didn't spend too long as we were on a tour of the acropolis but what we did see was impressive.

Of of the main attractions in Lindos village. For not religious people there is nothing interesting to see. Painted walls and ceiling. At least they don't demand 6€ for this.

This is a must do, but be prepared for a quite a walk from the car park to the top. It is well worth the walk & climb to the top. God can only know how this was built on such a rocky hill / peak. The Church is very well maintained & a serene place to be. The views... More

You walk past The Church of Panagia on the path down to small Pallas beach . Looks quaint and has a cobbled area in front . It seems the door was locked ! Not so sure it's expecting the roaming visitors ?

Those who have no idea about Byzantine iconography have no reason to express any opinion about any church. Those who can appreciate the beauty of idealistic frescoes have to visit the church.

This is the main church in Lindos and one of the only ones you can visit inside. Photos are forbidden inside though many tourists still try and take them unfortunately. Shoulders and legs must be covered inside and shawls are provided at the entrance. The inside is stunning and has a lovely, serene atmosphere. Donations are encouraged and its worth... More

Friends were married here 12 years ago, strangely when we visited this year the gates were locked and we were not able to wander around the chapel.

This is a small church in Lindos that has one of the most beatyfull painted walls that I have seen. Painted from top to bottom, make sure to not miss the entrance wall with a depiction of judgement/purgatory. Also do not miss the saint with a donkeys head as you walk in to your right.
