Walked up the winding road from Ialyssos, a beautiful trip that took us around 45 minutes. When we reached the top of the hill we were greeted by lots of peacocks that wandered freely all over the place. Entering the monastery will cost you some Euros, but the fee is necessary for the maintenance of the buildings, so it's a... More

This is a very beautiful place to visit. Suggest transport up the hill - we used a taxi. The entrance is 6 euro which is good that it is used for the upkeep of the Monastery. The building is very interesting and worth a look around. Beautiful views from outside. There are toilets near the gift kiosk that require a... More

Monastery and church on the site of an early christian church. The twisty ride up reveals new vistas around every corner. Interesting architecture, and incredible views, out to the Aegean. Overrun by Peacocks, who put up with the visitors. Pay toilet, overwhelmed by the number of tourists. Some snacks and drinks, as well as souvenirs.

A beautiful drive up a 250 meter winding road with pine trees either side got us to Filerimos Monastery. 6 Euros entry cost allowed us to see this 15th century monastery built by the Knights of St John, that is what google teaches us anyway, because there was no information provided at the monastery. We felt that a tour would... More

Small entrance fee (half price for elderlies if you show passport or driving licence) wonderful vie of Rhodes from the top. Old monastery interesting but not exceptional. Avoid if you don't like birds as there are peacocks everywhere.

Peacocks everywhere which was very unique and great views to reward your journey from the cross. too tight to pay to go in to the monastery however went up on a Sunday and witnessed Greek wedding which...

We drove here some people walked the 4km all up hill in 70degree heat. The monastery was €6 each so we didn't go in. Lots of free parking and cafe with gifts. Peacocks living in the grounds. A short walk to the large cross. The view of Rhodes town and the airport was amazing quite breathtaking. Great hour spent there... More

A must visit its a beautiful, stunning, spectacular place. Strangely serene with the amount of people there but it is. It has the most amazing views of Rhodes too. There was so many peacocks roaming around they were lovely. The actual monastery was 6E well worth it going towards the preservation of this beautiful site. The actual cross with the... More
