Peace, tranquility & beauty rolled into one! This is the REAL Cyprus and well worth a visit either enroute to Troodos or whether just out for a scenic drive.

We popped in one our way to the local vineyard for a look. Once you get past the "tat" stalls at the entrance the building inside is very nice. There's nice plant life around the courtyard giving lovely colour to the scene. Enjoyed seeing a lady painting the images seen around the religious sites (the ones painted on wood, sadly... More

It is well worth the drive through the mountains to this beautiful and spiritual place. The views are stunning and the peace felt is palpable

I've been here twice in the last year. Once in the snow last December and then in the heat of August and both times I thought how peaceful it is. You are left to wander round by yourself and take your time. Don't miss the little museum which is charming. The views over the countryside are lovely and on a... More

Lovely place to visit. A bit of off road driving to get there but that was our fault. Discovered a better road on way back. Free entry and very serene with beautiful views.

Compared to other monasteries this is very understated. It has fantastic views of the Troodos mountains and the grounds are beautiful. They also produced their own wine and spirits. We brought some cherry liqueur for six euros and it has to be the best we have had. So enjoy the views and don't forget to pick up a bottle before... More

Visited this place by car. Beautiful drive up. Surprised at how small the monastery is but the view from the cafe is worth the drive alone. I'm not religious but there is an inner peace to be found here!!

A bit of a far fetched story but a convenient rest stop on the way back from the Treasures of Troodos

It was pretty hot on the day we visited the place but this monastery is very peaceful and beautiful too. While visiting you have to be dressed appropriately. The interiors and the altar is definitely one of the most attractive parts of the whole monastery. The time we visited, it did not have many visitors and that is why we... More
