Away from all the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas lies the serene & peaceful monastery. 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 wall paintings in the old rock carved monastery are very well preserved & entered for a small... More

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.

all round great place to go. Stop and make a donation to the cat sanctuary on the way back out. They do some really great work there.

I would agree with those that say this ministry is okay rather then superb. I think unfortunately due to Paphos not having a huge amount of top-notch attractions anything like this gets a wow from many. It is a nice building which is in a great position for some scenic views but all in all it is pretty basic. The... More

Can recommend the Jeep tour of the Troodos Mountains, many stops loads of sights and information, it is chilly up there but worth going.

Very pretty monastery, but it is not as great as other reviews made it sound. It's just a monastery.

Saint Neophytos founded the monastery in 1159 he died in 1219 at the age of 85.The main church was built about 200 years later and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The monastery is a beautiful place to visit - so peaceful in among the Cyprus trees. There are exceptional icons in the church, also the museum and of course,... More

I am drawn back to visit the Ayios Neophytos Monastery it is such a special place to visit. It is magnificent so peaceful. It is set in pine trees with wonderful views over Pathos. Well worth a visit. There is plenty to view in the Museum and the Cafe is very popular,
