Artist's Description

Looking South East from the top of the Lindos Acropolis, to St Paul’s Bay.

St Paul’s Bay is a small rocky bay in Rhodes situated south east of Lindos Village. It is claimed that St Paul landed in Rhodes by this bay.

Lindos was founded by the Dorians led by the king Tlepolemus of Rhodes, who arrived in about the 10th century BC. It was one of six Dorian cities in the area known as the Dorian Hexapolis. The eastern location of Rhodes made it a natural meeting place between the Greeks and the Phoenicians, and by the 8th century Lindos was a major trading centre. Its importance declined after the foundation of the city of Rhodes in the late 5th century.

Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese group of Greek islands.
