Greece - Rhodes

Walk with me through the streets of Lindos

 
 

The whitewashed homes with blue accents and doors are somewhat iconic when it comes to Greek-styled homes, so naturally, you can find quite a few white buildings on Lindos as well.

It’s not just pretty and picturesque but in fact, the white color helps to cool down the island homes during the summer heat, but I have also read that it was used to prevent the spread of cholera. The whitewash contained limestone, which is a disinfectant, and not many others wherein common use during that time.

Should we all paint our houses with limestone? Of just visit Greece more often?
