After a short drive to the west coast, we will ascent to the top of Filerimos hill, where you will visit the monastery of Our Lady and the remains of the ancient acropolis of Ialysos, one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes Island. Visitors can walk along a "Golgotha", a tree sheltered pathway with a series of shrines with scenes of the Holly Passion.
Continuing we reach the Valley of the Butterflies which is one of the island's best known beauty spots. This valley has become world famous not only because of its natural beauty and unspoilt natural setting, but mainly because it is a gathering point for a specific species of butterflies which fill up the valley during the hot summer months, coating the trees and rocks in a multitude of colour, creating a unique experience that is both very rare and beautiful.
Further, along the north-western shore, lies the third of the island ancient city: Kamiros. Kamiros was one of the three large Doric cities of the island, which, united with Ialyssos & Lindos in the 5th Century BC to create the powerful city state of Rhodes. This ancient city of Rhodes contains the remains of an advanced civilization that is dated nearly 3,000 years old.
