there is an uphill walk to reach the monastery but the views are lovely. It is a very calming place and it,s a good place to sit and soak up the atmosphere. The story of how the place came into being is interesting and the artifacts in the monastery and caves are well worth seeing.All in all well worth your... More

We visited with a 2 year old and didn't think it would be very appropriate but there was a lot of space and he enjoyed the bridge, steps and caves.

High up in the hills above Paphos, complete with cyprus trees and very old olive trees the monastery is a place of beauty & quiet.

The monastery is in a lovely setting and a very interesting place to visit. The caves are a little disappointing but still worth seeing. A very enjoyable visit even with the sometimes non-existent road signs.

Loved the peace and beauty of the place. Incredible to visit the cell where the saint had lived and to see from the outside the upper cell to which he moved.
