this monastery is like most of them in Cyprus but always worth a visit. some of them you are not allowed to take pictures inside even though the views inside are wonderful. I was able to buy post cards for 50 euros instead.

it is a peaceful monastery but crowded and everything is gold pure gold. There is also a painting that was painted before Mary died. You are allowed to touch it

The restaurant is set in a very nicely located area of Tala, next to the Agios Neophytos Monastery about 12 KMS from Paphos town center. If you are on a tour this is usually one of the stops.

A reclusive monk and all that entails - lovely artwork and has an impact when you are there - that is all i have to say - why does the review have to be this long

Easy to get to from Paphos with a hire car, just head north on the B7 and then follow the signs from there. Car parking is plentiful and free at the Monastery, and there is lots of shade from the trees in the parking area. Entrance to Monastery and Church is Free, however the Museum, (worth a look as some... More

This monastery is very quiet and spiritual. Make sure you wander around the whole site and see in the oldest caves in the cliff face. The church is beautiful too

Excellent value for money at only €2 for the museum and caves. Nicely maintained with nice fresh and stocked toilet. Not an attraction to fill a lot of time with but worth a visit. Well sign posted from Tala too.

The drive itself is stunning, going through the mountains. Once you get there, the sight is instantly breath taking. The first thing you might notice is all the cats sleeping happily in the car park. They are very important to the monastery in that they keep the snakes away (hence, feeding them is often frowned upon). The monastery itself may... More
