Another fairly populated urban center is Ialyssos which is just over 10 kilometers from Rhodes. The popularity of Ialyssos is mainly due to the presence of Mount Filerimos, small hill of 267 meters reached by car or on foot. The ease of the route makes it easy to walk up to the viewpoint where a large cross stands out. Under the cross stands an ancient Byzantine monastery. Opposite the monastery are the remains of the ancient acropolis of Ialyssos.
