The Church is built on an ancient Athena Temple from pre Christian era. Ruins of this temple are still visible on the site. The Monastery itself was built during the time of Templars. The Architecture is noticeably not Greek.

Enjoyed our visit here, views from the cross were amazing, the cross was locked up not sure I would have wanted to climb up the steep steps inside anyway. The monastery was very nice & I am glad I went not sure it's worth €6...More

We walked from our holiday accommodation in Ialyssos, just under 3 miles uphill. Worth it for the views alone as well as the history, numerous peacocks and one of the best frappes on the island from the small snack bar. The local bus also runs...More

At the summit of Mt. Filerimos, the chapel of St. George was originally built in the 15th century by the Knights of Saint John, who had conquered Rhodes at that time. The peak is crowned by the Church of Our Lady, which is built over...More

I think it is not worth to pay 6euro per person. But the cross you can visit for free. From there opens beautiful panorama. Also here you will find a lot of peacocks.

Nice place but small, the cross is not too old, only since 1992 so not historical. The church and bizantine fortress were nice, but too small and you could see them only from outside. 6 € were a little bit too much to pay for...More
