Is a very nice quiet little church and is I think one of the oldest churches in Cyprus. You can go have a look there and also eat at the restaurant next to the church that the food is simple and excellent

Our relatives wanted to take us for sightseeing and during our tour in the mountains we stopped at this monastery. The church is very old and well preserved.

I have an eternal connection with the Monastery because it is the place where I was christened as a baby. And because my father comes from a nearby village we were often visiting the Monastery whenever in the area, especially because of the close relationship with the Abbot. However, in the recent years when I took visitors to show them... More

A small but beautiful church in the Trodoos Mountains. Full of beautiful icons and a real sense of generations of worship in this tiny jewel. Well worth the travel to visit it.
