This was quite a nice little monastery. It was the first stop of the day on an excursion we took. As a non religious couple, it was nice to admire the architecture and the mosaic art work. As a pilgrim I imagine it would have a lot more significance. One piece of advice as well, take a coat! We were... More

Interesting interior and cloisters. Exterior seems to be heavily restored (as are many monasteries in Cyprus)

A simple monastry with a stunning setting. Visited as part of a coach tour provided by Eos coaches. Excellent trip. Not a lot at this place which increased the experience of holiness as less 'touristy'.

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 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
