Superb setting and very quiet and peaceful. Lucky monks! Ladies have to dress modestly if they wish to go into the monastery but shorts etc O.K.in the grounds. Pleasant cafe area but should you wish to go via Tala there are half a dozen village restaurants in the square.

The place is not only easy to get to from Paphos, it also houses one of the most beautiful series of Byzantine paintings anywhere. Don't miss it!

If you are close by do stop by the church is very pretty and the small caves worth a peek. There are some refreshments too. Very cheap too.

Well worth a visit if you are exploring the Paphos region. Gives a good overall view of the Greek Orthadox Reglion. Caves are beautifully decorated in typical relgious style and have a fascinating history. Also a must for cat lovers.

A trip to the Troodos mountains, lunch and coffee in a small village cafe and a visit to the opulent Monastry...well worth it. You'll be amazed at the chandeliers!!!
