IPTC INFO
CaptionThe modern village of Lindos. The entrance to the village is on the north by its only square which is now used as a carpark and has a large tree in the middle and a small fountain with many features from the period of the Knights. Rocks behind and above it recall ancient aqueducts. The graveyard is also at the entrance to the village containing the church of Phaneromeni. A little beyond and below the square are the remains of the Moslem cemetery containing a few graves whose typical grave markers have been demolished. The school has been moved to the side of the Megalo Yialo and the old building beside the church of the Panayia built in the neoclassical style is now used by a local society for various cultural events. The streets of Lindos are a maze of continuous buildings chiefly with interior courtyards. Most of the houses have flat roofs but some variety of types can be seen among the buildings that have not been affected by time and changes of use and shape. The material used in their construction is either the local quarried poros stone or field stones which have been plastered and whitewashed. The houses of Lindos all have features in common but they can be divided into different classes: simple ones resembling the country cottages of the island houses with a courtyard and mansions. _________________________________ The Acropolis of Lindos Uploaded on January 31 2007 by annievz http://www.flickr.com/photos/annievz/375687489/
