This monastery is beautiful. Inside of those stone walls there is a small garden. It has a shop where you can find many icons. The monastery has a small church in the ground for praying and lighting candles. Worth a visit if you like history...More

As monastery’s go it’s interesting. We were lucky to visit during a festival so it was great but it’s not massive and doesn’t take long to walk around. It costs nothing to walk around it as it’s in the middle of the nightclub area quite...More

Cyprus has marvelous and famous monasteries. Mostly in the mountains or off the beaten track. This is not among the must see religious sites but is certainly worth a look if you find yourself in the area. Cyprus is good at preserving its religious heritage...More
