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

This is a very interesting place to visit, whether or not you are of a religious nature. I am not, but still found the paintings in the old chapel, which cover most of the ceiling space, and in the newer part of the monastery very awe inspiring. Our visit combined this with The Baths Of Aphrodite coach trip, advertised in... More

The monastery dates back to the 12th century. You can still see the cave, which was carved in the rock where St. Neophytos lived. There is also a small museum and a café. Just outside the gates are hundreds of cats who are looked after and are well fed by locals.

The monastery is about 20 minutes from Kato Paphos and is well worth the visit. Richly decorated church and hermit caves and a small but nice museum.
