It is old monastery, pretty good kept, but amazing view is the most interesting attraction of this place; just walk around the walls and have indescribable view. Entrance fee is 6 euros. If you go to (for free) the opposite direction through the alley, you're coming to the 60-feet high cross, with the another great view of 2/3 of the... More

The entrance ticket is 6 EUR, easy to find at the end of the road which says Filerimos. There is a small parking area, aoutside a small restaurant to buy some refreshment. Around the monastery and in the monastery's area there are a lot of peacocks. You can attract them with some sweets...

Filerimos Monastery is really beautiful and I'd recommend a visit to see the fantastic views and also the wonderful peacocks. We had our 1 year old with us and she loved it too.

Going up to the monastery we had rented a car. Finding the way up from the police station in Ialyssos was very easy. The parking was not to well marked but at the right hand side when you get to the top is a small field and you may park there as well as the parking lot (that seem to... More

The monastery is a combination of ruins, churches and way to a gigantic cross. All of them integrated to a lovely scenario with peacocks every where. The views are beautiful and worth the 6 euro fee.

The drive up the hill was well worth it. The views at the top are spectacular and the old monastery is fantastic. It really is most photogenic. The peacocks help to make this a wonderful experience. Walk the path seeing the stages of the cross and take in the atmosphere. I have the photos on my next year's calendar!
