Don't miss seeing this whole area.

Liked that we had comfy flat shoes on to negotiate the cobbled floors. Liked the activities that are often performed here, i.e. greek dancing performed by Cypriot young people.

Right in the middle of the town. We went on Good Friday, Greek Orthodox one, and saw flower festival as well in the modern church beside it. A must see visit. No charge either!

Its a very nice place not only to go but to get married, as I see so many couples getting married there. Also there is a small cafe there so you can sit and enjoy Cypriot coffee. Additonally outside there is a huge tree called ''Tumpezia''. Go and see it you will be amazed.

A monastery that started as a cave church and was expanded through the centuries. Well worth a visit.
