Filerimos & Kamiros Tour
Medieval Cities of Rhodes – Filerimos – Ancient Kamiros – Monolithos
We start our full day tour to the Medieval Cities of Rhodes. Our first stop is at the ancient city of Filerimos. We travel to the top of Filerimos hill where we visit the Monastery of Our Lady and the remains of the ancient Acropolis of Ialyssos, one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes Island. We walk along a ‘Golgotha’, a tree sheltered pathway with a series of shrines dedicated to scenes of the Holy Passion. This footpath leads to an enormous cross and view point, from the top where we can cherish the outstanding view of the villages and bright green valleys that surround the landscape below.
Leaving Filerimos, we head south along the west coast of the island to the area of Kamiros Skala. The ancient city of Kamiros, which was built on three levels, is situated on the mountainside overlooking the Aegean Sea. You will be able to walk through the well-preserved remains of the very rich and advanced civilization that existed in medieval times.
Leaving Kamiros and driving south along the west coast up into the lush mountains of the interior of the island, we reach the picturesque village of Embonas, and have lunch (a la carte-paid on the spot) at a local taverna which serves delicious traditional dishes. Then we will stop for souma, honey and wine tasting just outside the village.
We continue our tour to Monolithos a medieval castle balancing on the top of rock formations and affording one spectacular views of the Aegean and the surrounding islands. We shall have a stop here for photos before heading back to the hotel.
