Probably the best view on the island. This place is really interesting. As well as the cross, the walk out to it has monuments to the twelve stations of the cross to stop and read (unfortunately in Latin). But you are also walking amongst wild...More

Filerimos hill is the highest hill in Rhodes with great views and hidden down the back a closed Byzantine fort. Peacocks strut their stuff in the park. The monastery is of passing interest.

My wife and I walked from our Hotel, Ialyssos Bay, to Filerimos (Approx 14km). The views were unbelievable, not only from the top, but from various points up the winding road. The peacocks that scatter the route are amusing to watch and listen to, even...More

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
