  • On the highest mountain of the island of Rhodes, offering fantastic panoramic views of the sea and the countryside, stands tall concrete cross (18 m), as a symbol of atonement for human sins through the sacrifice of Jesus, path and therefore the hill called Golgotha. If you climb a mountain, then to the cross leads a beautiful cypress Avenue, where tall trees alternating with steles with reliefs on the theme of the passion of Christ as a reminder of his sacrifice. Top of the mountain is covered with vegetation and tall trees, among which proudly walk guys peacocks with their pavami and pavlinjatami. It seems that they are the owners here, but there is an unusual man by the name of Panteleimon, which is already 70 years supervises on the mountain, over the State of the Cross and a small chapel dedicated to our Lady of Filerimskoj, in a modest decoration which is a copy of the icon written in vivo sümela with faces of mother of Christ here, in a souvenir shop, you can buy a healing balm for the 7 secret herbs-200 ml for 10 euro that will help get rid of any ailment. The secret of this balm knows only the Caretaker of a mountain. Wonderful place and wonderful man. Next there are the monastery of the mother of God Filerimskoj, entrance fee is 6 euro. The locals really appreciate this site and consider it holy. They just gladly sit under a huge shady tree and think about something important and high.

  • The entrance to the ruins is worth 6 €, students and press discounts. Not bad, but need a guide or read info, where to go. Passage to cross for free, with good views of mountains. A lot of people strolling peacocks can feed. We roll.
