Ancient Ialisos & Cross

On the hill which rises above the Trianta village , is the hill of Filerimos. In front of the medieval monastery of Our Lady of Filerimos lie the ruins of the Acropolis of ancient Ialyssos. There the visitor can encounter columns from the temple of Athena Polias and the Doric fountain in lion head shape. You can also visit the monastery of Panagia.One particular place of unrivalled beauty and religious devoutness is the paved walkway opposite the entrance of the archaeological site. There is a planted wide path with olive trees, pines, oaks, cypresses called “the road to Calvary” with 14 etchings depicting scenes from the Passion of Jesus. At the end of this path stands a huge cross (The Filerimos Cross). Let yourselves be carried away by this fabulous view¬† while enjoying its beauty.
