Rhodes. Greece. View west of the acropolis of Ialyssos which is dominated by a monumental 17 metre high cross. The Italian built a tree hooded avenue called "Calvary" which is lined with stone altars embedded with reliefs depicting scenes of the Passions of Jesus and leads to the cross. Situated on the acropolis of Mt Filerimos on the verdant windswept west coast of Rhodes, Ialyssos is an outstanding fusion of ancient Doric, Byzantine and medieval archaeological remains and is one the finest sites of Rhodes Island. The island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Island group and one of the most popular Greek Islands.
