Ialysos is just a 15 minute drive from Rhodes Town & is one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes dating back to1500 BC & homeland of the famous ancient boxer Diagoras of Rhodes. One of the most significant archaeological sites on the island can be found here on the hill of Filerimos. It features the remains of the temple of Zeus and Athena, the 14th century church of the Knights of St. John & the ruins of the Byzantine fortifications. From the monastery starts the path to Golgothas, a path of Cyprus trees with engravings to one side that represent the Passion of the Christ. At the very end of this path stands a 70 meter high cross with a stairwell leading to the top where you can climb to enjoy the amazing views across the island.
