Classic Movie Travels: Rhodes, Greece (Lindos)

And, continued from my last blog post, I was fortunate enough to see yet another film site, this time — in Greece…

On Rhodes Island (and yes, I saw where the Colossus once stood — which was mind-boggling), they did quite of bit of filming for The Guns of Navarone including: the cliffs between Lindos & Pefkos, the Acropolis of Lindos, the Old Town of Lindos and Kalithea Beach.

The cliffs and beach just outside of Lindos…

Rhodes Island, Greece, just outside of Lindos where they filmed The Guns of Navarone (directors J. Lee Thompson, Alexander Mackendrick) starring David Niven, Gregory Peck and Anthony Quinn

And The Old Town of Lindos from afar, with The Acropolis in the background…

Lindos was a beautiful town, a location definitely worth another (and longer) visit.

Until next time…
