Church of the Holy Virgin
Situated in the heart of Lindos village on the sun-kissed island of Rhodes, the Church of the Holy Virgin, or as locals cheekily call it, Panagia is more than just another historical site. Built in the 14th century by the industrious Knights of Saint John, this Church isn’t just old; it’s ancient! And like that one aunt who’s seen it all but still rocks a party, Panagia has stories to tell.
Now, if you’re wondering about the top things to do once you’re there, let’s dive right in. First, those frescoes! These are different from your average wall paintings. They’re centuries-old tales of faith, devotion, and a bit of medieval drama, painted with such detail that you think they were the medieval version of HD.
And then there’s the bell tower. Standing tall and proud, it’s like the Church’s version of a selfie stick, offering panoramic views of Lindos village. Perfect for those “Look where I am!” moments.
In a nutshell, the Church of the Holy Virgin is where history meets art, spirituality, and a dash of fun. So, if you’re on Rhodes and looking for something more meaningful than a tan, head over to Lindos Village. Panagia is waiting, and trust me, it’s worth it.
