Korylovos is a relatively low mountain, with an altitude of about 500 meters and it is the southern end of Falakros Oros. It is located in the prefecture of Drama and at its foot lies the city of Drama. From the top of the mountain, the city and the plain can be seen, while on its top there are remains of the Byzantine church of Panagia Koriliotissa, which dates back to around 1050.
With the intervention of the forest department, the once barren and bare mountain was transformed into an important peri-urban forest, where thousands of coniferous trees were planted, mainly halepium, pine, cypress and fir. This forest is a recreation area and a place for daily walks for the residents of Drama, it is crossed by walking paths and has wooden benches and picnic tables. At the entrance to the Korylovos forest, a monument has been erected for the tens of thousands of victims of the German-Bulgarian occupation in the period 1941-1944.
At the top of the mountain, in addition to a hiking trail, there is also a paved road, 4 kilometers long. Just before the top of the mountain and at the right end of the paved road there is a huge concrete cross, placed in 1997, also in honor of the victims of the Bulgarian-German occupation, visible from the center of Drama. Its inauguration took place on September 14, 1997, on the day of the World Exaltation of the Holy Cross Day on the 75th anniversary of the Asia Minor Catastrophe. The installation of the Cross was done by Nikolaos Lachistalis out of his personal desire, as a tribute to the memory of his father but also for all the refugees of the Asia Minor disaster. Next to the cross he erected the small church, where he commemorates the day of the Universal Exaltation of the Holy Cross and by name the Virgin Mary of Icosifinissa as well as many Saints following the wishes of the walkers of Korylovos.
Near the top of Korylovos, there are sports facilities, a stone outdoor theater for summer cultural events, and a cafeteria.
The peak of Korylovos is a starting point for aeronauts, with two take-off runways used depending on the air currents that serve the flights!
