Ialysos (Ialisos), Rhodes

Ialysos is the second-largest town on the island of Rhodes, located on the island's north-western coast.

Ialysos was one of the first three ancient cities dating back to 1500BC. Here you will find one of the most important archaeological sites on the island on the hill of Filerimos, featuring the remains of the temple of Zeus and Athena, the remnants of the Byzantine fortifications, the 14th century church of the Knights of St. John and the 13 stops Jesus took to the road of Calvery-a path of Cypress trees with impressive shrines on both sides. There is a 70m high cross at the end of the path, with a steep stairwell leading to the top - needless to say the views from this vantage point are second to none!

Here you may also find information about the beach of Ialysos.
