Rhodes. Greece. View of the steep stairway that leads to the entrance of the Castle of the Knights of St John on the 114 metre high Acropolis hill at Lindos. The stairway and castle were built by the Knights between 1421 and 1503. Laying on the slopes of the dramatic Acropolis and Knights castle, the dazzling medieval whitewashed village of Lindos is a maze of narrow winding black and white tiled alleyways fronted by imposing doorways which lead to flower filled courtyards of the unique Lindian houses which were built by rich sea-captains during the 15th and 18th century’s. Lindos is located on the east coast of the island of Rhodes which is the largest of the Dodecanese Island group and one of the most popular Greek Islands.
