Filerimos mountain

#3 of 21 places to visit on Rhodes
Filerimos mountain rises 267 meters above the resorts Ialyssos and Ixia. It is located in the north-west of the island, 5 kilometres from Trianta and 15 kilometres from the city of Rhodes.

Once upon a time there was a temple of Filerimos Virgin, where one part of the building was given to the Catholic monastery, and the second - the Orthodox temple. It was the place where two faiths coexisted . Soon the Catholic monastery ceased to operate, but the Orthodox Church still works.

Here are the ruins of the ancient city of Yalis, the ruins of the temple of Zeus and Athena, and knightly castles.
