Its a monastery, but not on the scale of others. The church is beautiful - (no photos allowed) and there are cloaks provided if your clothes are not decent. Their wine and liquers are very good value. Just down the road is agia mori - a much older and really more interesting monastery

Interesting monastery in a wonderful setting. Small area overlooking the mountains where refreshments can be bought under a canopy that would keep you cool in summer.

Situated near the village of Pano Pangia, northeast of Paphos, this monastery has spectacular views. It is devoted to Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate, the symbol of Cyprusand houses many religious icons hoarded here since its foundation in the 12th century. It also boasts a winery.

I loved this place. So quaint and the people were so friendly. Careful when your walking thought as its old cobbles.

We loved this monastery, it was so quiet and peaceful - really nice to look around! Limited parking, there is a café and the monastery has robes/sarongs so that you can cover yourself up.

After the crowds at the admittedly stunning Kykkos Monastery, this was unexpectedly quiet and peaceful. There's a real atmosphere of calm, maybe even serenity, particularly if you're lucky enough to visit when there's no-one else there. Lovely views too.

I stopped here while on a one day driving tour of the mountains. Well worth a stop to sit and relax. There are local food stall, a café just outside the monastery. The grounds are well kept, a small gift shop to support the monastery inside. Wonderful view of the mountains and of the grounds. If you tour the mountains... More

We visited the Monastery as part of tour and it was a very interesting place. The views from the monastery are beautiful and the ancient winery has been reopened and produces wine. The visit doesn't take long but it is worth a look

Pretty brief stop, lovely location and atmospheric church. Small exhibits area and of course a shop. Worth a look if you are passing not worth a special trip unless you are travelling for religeous grounds. Respectful dress required.

Thank Gareth C
