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 to see it although St Georges chapel was amazing.

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 up to the monastery, although only once a day.

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 the ruins of a Greek temple and early Christian catacombs. In addition to the peacocks that are everywhere, there are also picturesque views of the island and the coast of Turkey in the distance. You can see all there is to see in about an hour or less. There is also a small cafe/gift shop on site.

On the top of Filerimos Hill is a setting that is a paradise for history lovers and keen photographers. The views are stunning, whereby you can look 360 degrees. Looking northwest towards the north of the island you see the tip (Rhodes Town) and south west is the airport. The monastery is peaceful, and walking around the grounds, whilst peacocks are wandering around- is a very calming thing to do. The monastery itself is lovely, and it was a pleasure to pay to place a light a candle inside and place it in the sand. The Byzantine Fortress further north on the top of the hill is a gem of a relic, whilst the Filerimos Cross on the south makes Filerimos Hill, and the wonderful Monastery a must-visit in my eyes. Rhodes itself is such a welcoming place, and under 18's free entry is a superb gesture, whilst 6 euro entry for adults is very good value! I fell a little bit in love with this place- do visit if you can!!
