Lindos - Pylona Village

Municipality of Lindos
Population: 504
46km from Rhodes town

The village of Pylona is situated 5 kilometres from the village of Kalathos and 46 kilometers southeast of the city of Rhodes. It was given the name Pylona as it used to be the portal of the south of Rhodes (Pylona translated means portal).

Pylona is a small picturesque village with a total of 504 inhabitants who are mainly involved in the agricultural industry. The tranquillity of the village of Pylona and the surrounding Olive Grove drenched mountains surrounding the village makes it one of the most unspoiled villages on the island. Only 5 kilometers from Lindos makes it an ideal place to relax and the perfect base to explore the surrounding villages of Lardos, Kalathos and the area of Vlycha.

The churches of the village, as well as many local monuments, were ruined by a major earthquake which struck in 1926. Today stands the beautiful church of St. Nicholas, and also in the same area the church of Evangelism, hosting Byzantine frescoes.
