Wiki Info Lindos

Again after stuffing ourselves at breakfast and loading up for lunch, we head to the bus station for the trip to Lindos and the ruins of the Acropolis there. What a great site for a temple and Acropolis! Although the standard line says this place had it's beginnings around 7th century BC, we believe that more was happening here even prior to Neolithic times. There is evidence of the bedrock having been carved/chipped out into foundation walls and way back then this island most likely was heavily treed. The structures built then would have long since disappeared. We were at the site just before huge groups of school kids invaded so had the place largely to ourselves, very nice! No rush to get back we stopped in for drinks at the Captain's House Cafe/Bar which is just below the towering fortress walls on an allyway leading to the steps. Really nice, quiet, classical- type music, kick back place and run by the son-in-law Savvas, of the great grandfather who bought it 150 years ago. A typical 'mansion' of the day when it was built 400 years ago in the heyday of shipping from this beautiful port.
