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!!!

Small and not much to do there. However, it is a monastery and not a theme park. They have a coffee shop and also sell wine at very reasonable prices

If you are staying in Paphos & have a hire car, this us worth a visit. The monastery is 10kms north west of Paphos, just outside a growing residential estate called Tala. The paintings in the 3 caves were really interesting. Only 2EUR entry. Highly recommend spending 5EUR on a guidebook to learn more about Saint Neophytos. If you are... More

From here there is an amazing view over Paphos, which enhances the beauty of the site. The chapel is wonderful, a shrine to the 12th century hermit St. Neophytos, as is the church set in the cliff caves. The Byzantine art is worth the trip!

We visited here just before Easter. The museum is interesting and the monastery is beautiful inside. They also like to hand out free fruit to the kids which is nice. Make sure you dress appropriately as they are quite strict about it. There is also a nice little gift shop on the car park. Please please please take a few... More

Historical and religious experience, both for orthodox Christians as well as for other visitors. The drive is through a forest winding road, and you can visit the almost one thousand years old monastery.

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
