This is a beautiful site to visit. It's not free but well worth it. The monastery is beautiful, be warned there is scaffolding around one part of the church due to renovation. Peacocks wander everywhere. You can then walk to the enormous cross and the...More

Wonderful winding road to a monastery could be a challenge by foot, but we took.a car, so enjoyed breathtaking views while driving. Monastery is very small, but nice, entrance is a bit too expensive for such a small monastery. But if you like history, old...More

A beautiful, peaceful site (other than the many Peacocks!) containing the Church of Our Lady of Filerimos, a Monestary, ruins of a small temple to Athena, all close to each other, and a long walk lined with trees and monuments to stations of the cross...More

So glad we made the trip today. The grounds were amazing & full of History. The calls of the peacocks, majestically fanning their feathers for all to see was a beautiful sight. Even the odd large lizards, scurrying about to get in the shade was...More

We did not feel the 6 euro entrance fee was worth it. There isn't a great deal to see. The bell tower was covered in scaffolding. There was no way into the monastery. The ruins of the temple are not very impressive. There are no...More

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.

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
