Went here as part of a quad bike safari. I really wished we had more time here because we didn't get to go into the caves or main rooms. There's not a lot of information for tourists, but maybe that was in different areas to what I saw. The views are magnificent and the drive up through the mountains was... More

It was quiet when we visited and the 1 Euro entrance fee a bargain .Interesting , worth seeing .I recommend having a drink or an ice cream at the café next door to complement your visit.

I visited this location off the back of some of the great reviews here on TripAdvisor and I was not disappointed. This is without doubt one of the best places I have visited in Cyprus and at only 1 Euro it is incredible value for money. Spectacular views and setting in the mountains, some beautiful paintings and a great little... More

I looked the monastery up online before visiting, but I couldn't find any tourist information about it when I got to the monastery itself. I would have liked to see the room that St Neophytos lived in, but I'm not sure if I did. I visited the museum, but nearly all the artefacts/icons were Russian or Venetian. So I left... More

So I don't follow any religion, thats not what drew me to this location, I wanted to go and see the post - Byzantine icons painted in the hermatage €1 Euro to view these and look around the museum, seems like a bargain to me! I thought it was fantastic. The cafe there is lovely too only ordered a couple... More

Very interesting, on the abc tour(another bloody church) but to be honest, very enjoyable, serene & quiet. We'll worth the. 1 euro admission to museum and caves, the. Monastery is free. Cafe very reasonably priced with a lovely outside area to sit in.....don't go at the weekends however, as packed!!!

The monastery was clean and very interesting with some lovely views. The cafe close by has a good menu with lovely shady area to eat. The cat rescue nearby is a must for cat lovers and run by a dedicated English lady doing a marvellous and difficult job.
