This place has history dripping off of the walls and is beautiful to boot! A perfect place to have your wedding photo taken and to sit and contemplate. it has an ancient running stream through it and a tiny chapel that is nearly always open to go inside and look about. lovely

This is right in the middle of the town, lots of shaded areas to sit and what the day go by also very nice to have a walk around and view some history, straight from there you go into the famous sqaure where all the clubs are and stay open until the early hours of the next day.

A free and very calm and beautiful place amidst the noise and bussle of Ayia Napa. Worth the bus trip to get there from surrounding areas.
