Still a lot of renovation work to be completed. But the building is very impressive. With many Cyprus donkey's walking about it is great for families.

The monastry is still under going restoration but is worth a visit. The drive is lovely through totally unspoilt countryside. There is a little market for the odd trinket or 2. Also a small cafe for refreshments, very friendly service.

This pilgrimage site goes with several interesting legends. With a high way, it is very easy to be there and see the site with one's own eyes. Plus there are many wild donkeys along the way, which adds to the mystery of the place.

One of the key tourist spits on the extreme tip Karpaz tour. The monastery is a wonderful work-in-progress renovation. Great altar piece which locals kiss (yes they kiss the pictures of the various saints)...as part of their mini pilgrimage. Market outside for tourist tut and...More
