Filerimos, the Conqueror`s Hill

The crusaders as well as the Turks began their conquest of the island at Filerimos. Today you can still find some old churches (photo) and have a wonderful view of the northern part of Rhodes. From there you walk down to the sea through pine forests.

AWT Near the gigantic oak tree at the parking area, walk
0.00 between the kiosk and the fence along an avenue of cypress trees which soon turns into steps leading downhill. These
0.05 are very overgrown but still lead safely to an unfinished building, above which you walk to the left and continue in this direction. You wander through an overgrown, seemingly bewitched garden to come to steps and then the street. On the other side of the street there is a dirt road which you should walk along downhill. This used to be the old street and will lead you past an old Turkish fountain five
0.15 minutes later. Then a cement supporting wall follows on the right, and the old street makes a right curve
0.20 behind it. In this curve, before the end of the street, a path with steps turns off to the left. Meander downhill along it. You reach the street again by walking to the right at a clearing with picnic tables (left).
Walk downhill along the street for three minutes until you
0.30 come to a parking area on the valley side. On the left edge you will see markings leading to another path
0.35 through the woods, which ends down at a water basin at the street. Continue along the sidewalk to reach the
0.55 street to Rhodes in Trianda. If you keep walking straight
1.05 on, you will reach the wide beach
