Lindos is one of the national treasures of Greece; Hotels are not allowed to be built in Lindos, and cars are not allowed in Lindos too, so the narrow streets remain vehicle free, appart from a few bikes all "village Taxis" are the donkeys.
I feel sorry for the donkeys...
I must say do not like to see the big adult tourists that sit on those poor small donkeys to get up such a steep hill...
They should only carry children... I have never been on one.
Lindos is a beautiful maze of little alleys with shops, bars and restaurants mixed with medieval walls, simple architecture, with wonderful black and white "chochlaki" pebbled floors and painted ceilings.
One of the main attractions of a visit to Lindos is the world famous Lindos Acropolis, set very high up above the town. It looks down into the clear waters of the Agean Sea and the whitewashed charming houses.

Reminds me of Santorini, Isabel, with the string of donkeys awaiting the tourists' arrival by boat, to take them up to the top of the hill. Carol

A lovely reminder of our honeymoon there in the 70s! We actually swam across St Paul's Bay (on the other side of the Acropolis) as well.

I'm with Ali on this one Isabel, great photographs, Lindos is a beautiful place to visit and the views from the top are
super. I hate that these poor creatures are use to ferry lazy tourists up the hill though, it should be banned.
