I visited the Monastery on a coach trip. The drive up to the site would have been less laborious in a car and I felt rather underwhelmed for having made the long journey to get there. The chapel is indeed, beautiful, but as was pointed out by another reviewer, photographs are not allowed anywhere inside the site. The views from... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the drive up to the monastery, nice quiet roads and interesting views all round. The monastery is small but very intimate and we enjoyed a quiet 10 minutes of contemplation looking down the valley from the terrace.

Situated near the village of Pano Pangia, northeast of Paphos, this monastery has spectacular views. It is devoted to Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate, the symbol of Cyprusand houses many religious icons hoarded here since its foundation in the 12th century. It also boasts a winery.

We loved this monastery, it was so quiet and peaceful - really nice to look around! Limited parking, there is a café and the monastery has robes/sarongs so that you can cover yourself up.
