The Monastery is interesting, but the cafe is lovely. It is situated below the monastery and the outside eating area is covered with a natural tree canopy. It is very tranquil and a few degrees cooler in the summer due to its altitude. The menu is limited but the food is good and the staff more than helpful, especially Eleni... More

Having never been to a monastery I didn't know what to expect. Straight away I felt peaceful and calmed. The church was beautiful. The surroundings and views are lovely. There is a small interesting museum. A lovely place to just sit and think.

A long drive from Paphos but well worth it. The church was small and very dark but crammed full of religious 'stuff'. That alone is not worth it but climb the stairs towards the caves. Fantastic! A very helpful young man in the ticket office told us about the cave church. We paid our €2 and went in. The church... More

peacefull, historic. Be mindful of the Monastery's customs. Many ancient artifacts to see, very interesting..Lots of parking, clean public toilets. Staff very helpful and friendly. A plus is the amazing view you get from being high up the mountain. Breathtaking. Little cafe there too, which was closed as we went in December out of season, no matter just made it... More

This is such an oasis of peace and calm. It can be reached by minibus from the old town if you don't have a hire car. This is one of our 'must return to' places when we are in Paphos. There is a museum, church and sanctuary to visit and there are wonderful views from the grounds. It is just... More

We visited late December. This is a beautiful place, with lots of interest. The church has fascinating religious art work and decoration. The courtyard is large and has a view down to the coast. Further on, €2 gets you into a wonderful linked series of small caves, all with c12 wall paintings. There is also a small museum. The highlight... More

The monastery is a must for anyone interested in religion, culture and the beliefs of Cyprus. The monastery contains relics, icons and there is also a museum which is well worth visiting. St. Neophytos' cell is a steep climb but again a not-to-be-missed site of interest. There is a large gift shop and a cafeteria. The monks are friendly and... More

This is a beautiful monastery, the old monastery was carved in the mountain, and looks very special especially from the outside. The gardens and the newer buildings are also very pretty. There is a museum as well, if you are into history. I was more interested in the scenery. It's about 15 minutes drive from Paphos, and the admission to... More
