LINDOS  HISTORY

Here Cleoboulos, one of the seven sages of ancient Greece lived and ruled.
While Rome was a small Etruscan village , Lindos was a centre of civilized life, or art and culture.
The temple of LINDIA Athena was built by Cleoboulos in 550 B.C. and rebuilt in the 3rd century B.C. in the form you see today.
When the Hellenistic and Byzantine world fell to the Saracen invasions , the knights of St.John occupied the island.
They fortified the Acropolis, incorporating the old Byzantine church which is still visible.
