Ialyssos is an ancient city in the island and prides itself in having remains of occupation that date back to 3rd millennium BC. In addition to this, the city also has cemeteries and settlements that date back to the Minoan-Mycenaean period. The Filerimos hill in the city is the main location where most of the history is preserved. The hill’s original name was Achaia - which serves as evidence of the existence of Greeks in the area in the Mycenaean period. In 1912-1945 (Italian Rule) there were several shrines built in the hill. These shrines are still intact to this day.
