Visited this monestry on the way to the kykkos monestry and troodos mountains. It's stunning and beautiful. So peaceful and quite and truly to me is the real cyprus. It's free entry and a lovely look around. We took some fab pictures!

The monastery lies at the tail end of my favourite drives in the Troodos mountains, Paphos to Mount Olympos, across to Kykkos monastery, down through Cedar valley and back to Paphos.

After visiting a local winery we decided to visit the monastery. We wandered around for a bit and then sat at the small cafe and enjoyed the view. Really loved the serenity of the place!

He spends his days picking grapes and making wine to sell to the people that visit. We went on a Monday and did get told not to... More

A lovely little Monastery set in a shaded location and not far from the Asprogia-Kannaviou Dam. The Monastery is worth stopping off at for 20 minutes to enjoy the shade and look into the small chapel.

We visited as part of an excursion. Smallish Monastry with some very interesting icons etc. A quaint 'Cafe' where you could sit under cover,and look out on to some fabulous views over the hills and valleys.
