The drive itself is stunning, going through the mountains. Once you get there, the sight is instantly breath taking. The first thing you might notice is all the cats sleeping happily in the car park. They are very important to the monastery in that they keep the snakes away (hence, feeding them is often frowned upon). The monastery itself may... More

Not worth the long difficult drive to get there. But lovely forest around the monastery and on the journey there

The Monastère is on a hill where we can have a great view of Paphos! There we can also buy traditional sweets and drinks made by the monks of the Monastère. You can get a feeling of joy and relaxation while you're there so it's worth visiting!

We went here as part of Georges Funbus Tour & found it really interesting especially the cave murals. Good way to experience part of Cyprus culture.

Although I'm not religious, I do like to visit every church I can on my travels since they tend to hold a lot of local history. Agios Neophytos did not disappoint. It has an interesting museum although they could look after the ancient artifacts a little better. Baby pram access was slightly restricted, but not impossible. The cave frescos were... More

Typical Cypriot historical site but with more to offer due to size and age of the church good excuse to leave the beach and enjoy the sights

Have lived in Paphos for over 2 yrs, but wasn't aware of this Monastery until lately, so had to check it out. It's a nice drive up to the Monastery and there is a great view from there. Was impressed about the frescos, which were well preserved. It doesn't take very long to see it all, but it's a nice... More

The entrance fee to the place is not much and that is the reason why I decided to stop at the place. It turned out to be a wise decision. The whole place is serene and calm and offers a wonderful view of paphos that itself makes it a worthy place to visit. The place requires you to be modestly... More

We enjoyed discovering this monastery. We were advised to visit by our hotel and were not disappointed. It was a most peaceful and serene monastery , very well maintained we were lucky to visit when a service was taking place.

Went on a Sunday and despite not so hot weather it wasn't crowded at all. Started off with lunch in the cafe/restaurant which was ok. Nice but slow service and decent prices. Monestary was small and you can only enter two areas. But for one euro it's ok. Impressive from the outside and so are the views.
