This monastery and the caves are a lovely site to visit. We have taken many guests here - old and young. It is worth reading the story of the hermit that built the caves and the history of the monastery. Whilst most of the site is accessible for disabled, the caves are not as you have to climb stairs.

We headed here for somewhere to go...the drive is very cool and on entering the road to the monastery you're breath starts to be taken away...and also a relief upon spotting the free toilets in the car park!! Getting out of the car you feel the cooler air and welcome breeze amongst the heat of the day...a definite aah! It's... More

Nestled in the top end of a beautiful valley this monastery is perfect. Although not a religious person I found this location to be one of my favourite spots. The caves are interesting and the church is peaceful and has a nice ambience. The additional bonus is a very good family run cafe in the grounds. Perfect.

Nice location. There is church, gardens, museum and caves. Unfortunately in caves there were no information. I didn't know which of this caves is a chapel or place to sleep or maybe grave of Neophyto. Maybe I didn't have good guidebook enough, but I think that if You pay for the entrance You should get as much information as it's... More

Delightful place to wonder around. Wouldn't allow longer than an hour though. Found the church over powering in a strange way. Quite small with gold everywhere. Walked around the monks area and found a door open showing the feet and belly of among lying on the bed! The rooms are very small and dark. Views great but most interesting was... More

Superb monastery. Icons must be seen to be believed. No photographs inside allowed but outside the monastery makes up for that.

Superb setting and very quiet and peaceful. Lucky monks! Ladies have to dress modestly if they wish to go into the monastery but shorts etc O.K.in the grounds. Pleasant cafe area but should you wish to go via Tala there are half a dozen village restaurants in the square.
