Lindos, Lindos

Lindos , Rhodes
Greece's insider take:

The village that launched a thousand postcards has streets filled with elaborate villas—"captain's houses" that were built by merchant ship owners between the 16th and 18th centuries (many with courtyards of lovely pebble mosaic). In the 1960s and '70s, artists, writers, and rock musicians gravitated here to soak up the sun and swig retsina; David Gilmour of Pink Floyd still has a house here. Lindos also has an acropolis, one of three original Dorian acropoleis on Rhodes, containing the ruined Sanctuary of Athena Lindia, with its large Doric portico from the fourth century B.C.
