Hermes is a newly built fortress city atop the mountain. The Church officials call it the New Holy City.
Hermes was established 20 years before Roland's transfer to resist Demonic beasts at Months of Demons. Initially there was nothing, but during this time, the Church paved a road from Old Holy CIty up the mountain to transport supplies and construction materials and built fortress city with spectacular buildings and impressive walls.
