Mt. Filerimos just outside the capital Rhodes (15km), is a hill 267m. high, overlooking the small town of Ialyssos and the bay of Ixia and Trianda. From its top, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Aegean with turquoise waters near the shore and deep blue as it stretches toward the coast of the Asia Minor. Thickly planted with cypresses, pines and other trees, it is an ideal location for a long walk into the Rhodian nature. This place is also an important archeological site; here once stood the Acropolis of the ancient town of Ialyssos with an important temple dedicated to Athena Polias.
