Lindos is a village with thousands of years of history since its already known from archaic years and was one of the three Dorik cities of the island, the only one that continued to prosper even after the founding of the new settlement of the City of Rhodes on 408 bc.
Famous throughout the ancient world, was the sanctuary of Lindian Athina, whose ruins exist even today on the beautiful ancient acropolis of the village.
The settlement is characterised as preservable and is kept unchanged since the era of the rich lindian boat owners of the 15th century.
The residents due to the unfertile land, from the ancient times were concentrated on the sea, and were great sea masters. Now the main occupation is tourism.
