Panagia of Filerimos

The Monastery of Our Lady of Filerimos is located on the hill of Filerimos, in Ialyssos, at an altitude of 264 meters. The monastery of Panagia is dedicated to the Source of Life and dates back to the 14th century.

This site was preceded by the Acropolis of Ialyssos and the ancient temple of Athena, which in the 5th century AD. was converted into a Christian temple, from which only the Baptistery is preserved today. The later church complex was built by the Knights and restored to its present form by Italian archaeologists.

Just 50 meters northwest of the Church of the Virgin Mary is the one-storey arched church of St. George of Chostos, dated to the second half of the 15th century, which is considered the burial chapel of a prominent Frankish family.
