Arguably the most interesting of the monasteries in the region, if you are just going to visit one, this should most probably be it. Approached either via Pafos or Tala (Coral Bay) the monatery is well signposted with plenty of good parking and the ubiquitous gift shop and café present before you enter the monastery itself. The original monastery carved... More

Brilliant! Easy to find, decent car parking, and toilets etc. Lovely setting high up in the hills. We tagged along with a guided tour, that helped! You only need around an hour to see it. Well worth the journey

I have been visiting this place for a long time and its so peaceful, and a nice coffee shop under a very well established Pergola, so on hot days a nice shade.

Lovely day out... Not the place to take the young children in the heat. My friend and I enjoyed the whole day, very clean and friendly people.

Very peaceful area up in the hills, away from the busy Paphos city. Very friendly staff, incredible frescoes in the caves. Shop selling honey and other Cyprus goodies, and lovely Cyprus coffee and spoon sweets in the cafe. A good half day excursion.

Beautiful, clean, quiet and tranquil. A lovely place to visit and a bargain at only 1euro per person. Whether you are religious or not you can't fail to appreciate the beauty of the religious artefacts in the little museum; the beautiful frescos in the church or the amazing wall & ceiling paintings in the old monastery. Clean toilets and a... More

Monastery at the head of the valley above Empa (quite a few miles). The first Saint dug 4 caves in the cliff which have paintings of Religious Icons. The relatively modern church, museum and monastery are simple but beautiful. A lovely place to visit.

We visited on Cyprus Independence Day so the Monastery was an attraction for locals as well as tourists. This didn't detract from the peacefullness.

I like dthe place very much, but if you're not overly religious, be careful in the church, the locals take it very seriously, and don't appreciate us tourists milling about.
