Came across this monastery by chance. Lovely small place steeped in history. The grounds and gardens were very well maintained. Small but pleasant with friendly staff. Cafe and facilities outside

St. Neophytes If you are staying in Paphos it would be a great place for you to escape from day hot. Located couple of miles from Paphos but above humidity area so the temperature 2-4 degrees lower and you can enjoy the shade of huge trees, drink frappé and walk through the monastery.

Took the bus from Paphos to the Monastery. A wonderful drive listening in to the conversations, locals returning to their villages wth their shopping. Had a snack and drink in the cafe in the car park, had a wander around the gardens then found the cave and museum had shut for lunch. We had an hour to look at the... More

No need trek to Troodos. One of Cyprus's premier monasteries is in Paphos' back yard. Be sure to Wiki the Saint for his fascinating story before you go. And don't miss the Monastery's traditional shop just beyond the tacky tourist items.

This is the most amazing place to visit, the peace and tranquility is just astounding. If you are very lucky you may get to hear the monks chanting, you cannot fail to be moved by it. I'm not a religious person, but I look forward so much to visiting here each time we are in Paphos. Ladies do remember to... More

This is worth a visit, take the bus from Upper Paphos. There are many old icons and books to see in the museum (2 euros) If you can climb the steep steps to the other part of the monastery then do.

Lovely monastary to visit which as you would expect is very peaceful and relaxing, the church is beautifull. The little museum is great and full of amazing artifacts.

If monastic life can be defined by its peaceful, secluded environs, Ayios Neophytos is the place to find it. It is not that daunting to drive up to the monastery, but once the ascent has been negotiated, it is fairly off the beaten track to appreciate the solitude of the abode. All the building spread is beautiful, starting from the... More
