Shepherd Entertainment takes you on a tour of Lindos in Rhodes, an archaeological site which can easily be seen from the
mountain where according to legend; Apostle Paul could find shelter from the stormy sea.

During heat waves, Epta Piges, the Seven Spring Valley pleasantly eases the heat. Its special microclimate can be attributed to the cool creeks which join together in a lake. Beside the lake is a restaurant. Several unusual plants such are orchids are at home here.

According to mythology, this is also the home of the Naiads, the forest nymphs. Our way continues on along the orange groves. Lindos, the second most well known and visited place at the Island of Rhodes can be found a little over 50 kilometers from the capital city.

The smaller port of Lindos can easily be seen from the mountain where according to legend; Apostle Paul could find shelter from the stormy sea.

White houses frame the mountain like a collar on which there is a grey citadel. First, a temple devoted to Athena, the goddess of virtue was erected on the 120 meter high cliff then a castle was built on this place in Byzantine times which was alter to become a real fortress by Johanite Knights.

The total floor space of the castle is 8.5 square kilometers. Multistoried hotel blocks are unknown in the village but there are several guest houses with six or eight rooms each. The terrace to Acropolis that rises above the sea can be reached only by a long walk. Riding a donkey, this journey is less tiring and much more exciting. By the way, a donkey is a characteristic means of transport in Greece, so it’s worth getting familiar with it.

Regarding the increase tourist trade, almost every house of the beautifully renovated village has opened a shop, tavern, bar or ice cream bar.
