A lovely ride out from Pathos into the hills and beautiful countryside, which in spring covered in flowers with grapevine budding and almond trees blooming. High up with views of forest and pines and almost an alpine feel to this lovely serene monastery.

This is a place of peace and solitude with far reaching, beautiful views over the forest. Clip up to the higher level to see forever.

In contrast to the opulence of the Kykkos monastery is the smaller Chrysorrogiatissa monastery, a beautiful and spiritual place. In March, there were hardly any visitors, the cafe was closed and the church was dimly lit. However this all added to the atmosphere. The monastery has its own winery and sells bottles of wine, beautifully boxed for ease of travel... More

This monastery in the Paphos Forest was an ancient and restful place. A distinct lack of tourist trap shops but worth a visit with spectacular views

As it was with the other Monasteries I saw on my holiday, this was a beautiful place with so much interesting and historic things to see. We had a tour guide to take us through and I learned so much. Absolutely worth it.

Only thing missing was information. A tour guide of 15 or 20 minutes would be perfect. Beautiful but small
