Worth a visit

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.

The Monastery is about 10kms in the outskirts of Paphos close to the village of Tala. The Saint lived in the monastery (he was the founder) and died in 1219 at the age of 85. The main church was built 200 years ago and is dedicated to Virgin Mary. There are Byzantine icons of exceptional artistic quality in the main... More

Paid two euros to enter the cave and the museum; seriously the terminology museum and cave were too big to describe this place. The cave was a tiny carved out room from rock, with some wall painting; re museum was a small room displayed some religious artefact that were less than impressive. I don't know if anyone can spend more... More

a peaceful reverent place, full of history and surrounded by the stunning mountains. The paintings inside are beautiful and offer incite into the history of the island, the attached museums also hold a good range of artefacts, many with religious significance. The view form the top of the stairs is gorgeous

Took a drive to the Tordos Mountains and stopped here... I am so amazed by the way the monastery is kept up and that there are still 6 I think monks living there... The church was amazing as well... We actually touched the skull! The grounds are beautiful and worth a visit if you are in Cyprus..

Very, very ornate! We had an excellent guide who explained worship in the Greek Orthodox Church. Personally I found the building a disappointment as it was not as old as expected and decorations were largely copies. Glad to have visited and the drive through the Troodos mountains was excellent as we were in a mini bus and travelled on small... More
