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

Just a beautiful, peaceful place. It was a miserable wet day when we called by and they were not expecting anyone. No fuss, just a stunning church.

OK to see if you are in the area, but a little off the beaten track. nice scenery and good views. Care where you take photos.

We visited late December, when very few people were about and the cafe and shop were closed. Nonetheless, the decoration and iconography in the church are fascinating, as was the stroll round the small courtyard.

This now unused monastery has one of the most beautiful churches with masses of history. It used to be a centre of wine making and icon painting. The sole remaining abbot will share information and experiences with any visitor. There is a lovely cafeteria which provides simple but delicious meals. The views are stunning.

Takes an hour bus ride form Paphos, the view on the way up is beautiful. Dress appropriately, it's an active monastery. It's a moderate sized church, with grounds to walk around (about a 30 min stay in total), again, the views are great - they overlook the valley. They have a shop inside too, which sells books, Orthodox religious icons... More

Beautiful monastery hidden away in the mountains. Not rich as Kykkos but quiet and restful. The views over the valley are stunning and overlook the village of Panaega which is the village where Archbishop Makarious was born.
