Castle Order of St. John is at the end of the street, and in it we can see what he looked like everyday life boats. One room is dedicated to the Maltese Knights.

This “bleached” looks more like a town than on Santorini Rhodes itself, and to the Acropolis, where the temple of Athena Linde, you must climb up the evening, because it is enjoying the view at sunset is greatest. Beaches with turquoise water around Lindos are beautiful.
