The interior is completely covered in decorative religious art. It is amazing. We were fortunate to have attended some of the Sunday service. A wonderful experience

Beautiful church but the female welcoming party were so rude and unfriendly
Made us feel very uncomfortable to visit. My son and I were in shorts and in no uncertain terms we were made to feel so unwelcome
The church itself and the paintings were stunning however
Some background information would have encouraged us to engage and donate more

I have been to Lindos several times before and not bothered to visit this church - what a mistake. The paintings are stunning. Luckily my husband is much more religiously educated than me so could explain the depictions from the bible. It is very beautiful and interesting too. There is a small museum behind the small church. It is well worth the €3 entrance fee.

I went to the church to get out of the sun - and, apart from being air conditioned (!) - it was a charming church with the characteristic Rhodian cobbled mosaic floor.

Beautiful church and well worth a visit. You will see icons in good condition and lovely cobble stone floor.

We searched for this church before realising that Panagia means mother of Christ or Our Lady. Anyway it is very small and absolutely stunning inside in an understated way. We weren’t asked to cover up but best to be prepared to. One of few things, other than the acropolis of course, to actually visit other than bars and shops.

We couldn’t get in despite being there between the posted open times.

Maybe closed due to Covid-19

Church tower can be viewed from many of the roof top bars and restaurants or from the steps up to the acropolis

A cross-shaped 14th century church with an octagonal dome.
It is decorated with eighteenth-century frescoes.
Sadly we couldn't go inside because we forgot our decent clothing (something to cover our shoulders and legs).

A stunningly beautiful Byzantine Church decorated on every available inch with art and artefacts. Containing some every mysterious images, provoked further research.
