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.

My youngest daughter and I visited this place and were fascinated by the artefacts and history of the church. Very interesting and the decoration inside the church is stunning. No cost but contributions are requested.

Interesting church. But less impressive then the ones in the Town of Rodos. Everything in the church can be seen in about 15 min.

My sister got married here in June 2015 and used Lindos Weddings as her planners. Whilst this review isn't about them, I must add that they are a very well organised and professional company. The church is typically Greek with a lovely large tree in the courtyard that offers so well needed shade! If anyone is considering Lindos to get... More

My friend got married at this chapel a few days ago, it was simply stunning! The tree was very much needed to keep us all in the shade while the vows were read. The views over into the bay were fantastic and the ceremony was beautiful, a fantastic location!

Walked passed the church several times before deciding to go in and the interior is nothing like you'd expect. One of the most colourful churches you would ever expect to see coupled with displays of religious artefacts and wall to ceiling paintings. Worth a look if in Lindos
