What a beautiful and surprisingly relaxing place, I say surprisingly because of the noise the hundreds of peacocks make. The Monastery and it's grounds are littered with peacocks all calling out to on another and once one starts they all start, it was fantastic to see and hear. The Monastery buildings themselves are very well maintained and give a great insight into life all those thousands of years ago. Make sure you walk behind the Monastery and check out the fantastic panoramic views of Rhodes Town and surroundings. I gather that this Monastery normally costs however if you go on a Sunday you'll get free admission.
The Filerimos Cross is also another must see, just a short walk from the Monastery along a beautiful tree lined pathway is the cross which also offers fantastic views but in the other direction. If you can and if you're not afraid of heights then make sure you climb the cross but I stress only if you're not afraid of heights.
Even the drive up to the Monastery is something to behold, as you climb the winding road the occasional clearing gives way to another brilliant view.
