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

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. The monastery is quite small and if you are there with coachloads of visitors, it can be swamped. Fortunately, I have always managed to avoid that, and found the... More

Went on a trip to visit this monastry was in a lovely peaceful setting, on the trip we visited a number of other places of worship or interst but this by far was the most memorable place. The weather was very hot on the day of our visit so my advice to anyone who does visit the monastery would be... More
