This is my favourite walk. From my apartment in Tala its 40 mins to the monastery. I usually have a look around and have a rest before carrying on. There is a lovely cafe and a shop that sells their own bread and honey plus gifts. Well worth a visit, enjoy!

A very tranquil place - wonderfully looked after and beautiful. My friend was local and encouraged me to follow what they did - I later discovered I had kissed the skull of the founder! There was this brown object - and that was it... just the back was visible and following the 'When in Rome' theory.... I followed suit! Made... More

A beautiful quiet area with historic caves and a fabulous monastery. The whole area exudes calm. You will love it if you want some time away from the hustle bustle of the towns, to go back a few hundred years and discover some history of this Saint. Then sit amongst the shade of trees in a fabulous cafe for a... More

There is nothing you can't like about this place it is so peaceful. It does have a lot of steps to the oldest. It which older or disabled would struggle with.

This beautiful monastery is up in the hills, about 8 miles from Paphos. It’s a 20 minute ride on the 604 bus from Karavella station. It’s a very calm and tranquil place. The grounds and buildings are spotlessly clean and well-maintained, and the views are amazing. The highlight is the cave where St Neophytus dug a tiny chapel and a... More

Lovely peaceful place, not a huge site but worth a visit. Free parking (as usual which I love in Cyprus), so peaceful with lovely views. Easy to find from Paphos town (B7 then signposted left) - not far at all. a few euros to enter little caves and church and museum there. Sat on bench under olive trees and enjoyed... More

Beautiful paintings and architecture in lovely surroundings. Such a peaceful area with amazing views from the monastery itself, definitely worth the extremely bumpy bus ride from Pathos

Never seen a monastery which looks after cats before. It was amazing to see so many cats, which considering the lack of money, were very well cared for.

I wanted my friends to have the opportunity to see a typical festival at a Monastery or Church for a Saints day. This monastery is a favourite of mine and I knew there would be a good selection of local stalls selling various things on the way up to the Monastery. None of us were disappointed. We were able to... More
