We went here on a sunday, we were surprised they don't charge an entrance fee on sunday! The peacocks are everywhere on the grounds and made the visit even more fairlytaley. The monastery itself wasn't that impressive to me, but the views were absolutely stunning.

Filerimos hill is the highest hill in Rhodes with great views and hidden down the back a closed Byzantine fort. Peacocks strut their stuff in the park. The monastery is of passing interest.
