location iconFilerimos Mountain

You can reach Filerimos Mountain in less than 40 minutes by car when you stay at Leonardo Kolymbia Resort on Rhodes. It’s worth the drive because it offers plenty to see and do on a day trip. Also known as the Acropolis of Ancient Ialysos, it is famous as the site of a former Catholic monastery, which is no longer in use, and several other religious landmarks:

  1. The Catholic Monastery of Filerimos is well preserved and quite the star attraction of the site. Erected by the Knights Hospitaller, destroyed by Ottoman Turks, and rebuilt by the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, the monastery no longer operates in its religious capacity. Visitors may enter the complex for a small fee.
  2. The Church of Our Lady of Filerimos is inside a temple formerly dedicated to Athena Polias, converted into a basilica and rededicated dedicated to Virgin Mary (Panagià). Inside the church you can see a copy of the icon of Our Lady of Philermos, which originated in the Holy Land, then kept inside the temple until the arrival of the Knights Hospitaller, who moved it in the monastery. Today, the original icon is on display at the National Museum of Montenegro.
  3. The path to the Cross, which is sometimes called Via Dolorosa or the Way to Cavalry (Golgotha), runs between cypresses and bas-reliefs depicting scenes from the Passion of Jesus Christ, all the way to a fabulous white-washed concrete cross of Filerimos.
  4. Cross of Filerimos – made of concrete, it is a 16-meter monument overlooking the surrounding landscapes with views of Ialysos, Kremasti, Sgourou, and Rhodes City in the distance. Sometimes, visitors can climb inside of the cross to the arms of the monument for even more impressive views and photo ops.

There are other monuments besides these landmarks including the ruins of the ancient city of Ialysos. Visitors to Filerimos Mountain can further enjoy the landscape for hikes in nature where they can observe the flora and the peacocks roaming freely on the trails.

Left Arrow Right Arrow
Monolithos Village
Typical Greek with traditionally white-washed homes with rooftop terraces overlooking the hills and the sea, Monolithos Village is a little over an hour drive from Leonardo Kolymbia Resort on Rhodes. You can visit the hamlet to take a stroll on its streets and to observe the lifestyle of the locals.
 
Kallithea Springs
Less than a half-an-hour drive from Leonardo Kolymbia Resort and about nine kilometres south of the City of Rhodes, Kallithea Springs count among the gems of the island. They are a natural spa and therapeutic waters in a superb natural setting.
 
Seven Springs valley
In a valley that looks like a movie set, the Seven Springs of Rhodes are nature’s respite from the heat of the summer. Natural springs make their way over the rocks in a verdant pine and plane woodland until eventually flow through a tunnel into a small, manmade lake.
 
Boat Trip to Lindos Village
A boat trip to Lindos village offers more than transport – it’s a complete, fully-rounded experience, most of the times including swimming and snorkelling, several stops for photo ops, and time to explore the Acropolis of Lindos and the village at your pace.
 
Boat trip to Anthony Quinn, Kallithea bays & Traganou caves
One of the most rounded boat tours available, when you stay on Rhodes, will take you to see the scenic Anthony Quinn Bay and Kallithea Bay, stopping to both for swimming and snorkelling. Exploring the Traganou Cave is part of the experience too.
 
Rhodes 4WD Safari
When you want to explore the countryside of the island and areas with rugged terrain, choosing the Rhodes 4WD Safari can provide a fantastic, memorable, and safe experience. It may not be just yet on the visitors’ must-see list, but it can be fun and rewarding, as it can drive you to areas that are otherwise remote and hard to access, especially if you are not into hiking.
