Filerimos Hill

Filerimos Hill used to be the citadel of the ancient town of Ialysos, and its large plateau is home to some intriguing historical attractions. On the eastern side of the hill, see the foundations of the Athena Polias temple and an early Christian basilica, dedicated to Virgin Mary, as well as a Byzantine church. The Monastery of Filerimos is an important archaeological site where Mycenaean pottery and a Doric foundation have been unearthed. A path to the west, lined with cypress and pine trees, leads to an impressive crucifix at the centre of a small square.
