Quiet area, green landscape, you can go there very easy. Very close from the town of Paphos. Clean, beautiful monastery. You can also visit the museum aside. Before you leave you can enjoy your coffee in the cafeteria next to the monastery.

Excellent site, the little caves with original paintings etc are very calming and take you back to a time long gone. Friendly staff, interesting small museum, well worth an hour or so out of your schedule.

Interesting artefacts in the museum, large fairly recent church and monastery but the real interest is the ancient caves which are very small/cramped so go early or late.

This monastery was founded in the 12th Century by monk Neophytos and you can see where he lived in caves carved into the hill. There is an interesting church, and a small museum with various religious artifacts. We visited as part of a trip. Worth a visit if nearby.

It is well worth a visit even if there are not so many monks left here. It is well worth visiting the shop to choose very reasonably priced mementos.

We visited this old monastery last week. Is located in Tala Village which is 20 minutes away from Paphos City center. A lovely monastery located in a fantastic green landscape surrounded by mountains. Small museum located under the church. Greek orthodox monks living inside the monastery. A must visit place.
