What a surprise !
Apr 2019 • Couples
We stumbled across this ruined monestary. As other reviewers say it is surprisingly well taken care of a rarety in Cyprus with a roof cover protecting what's left of the wall painting from the elements. A simple info board gives a brief history. The mill race can be imagined in the now dried up stream and some interesting buildings can be seen along the way. Lovely wild flowers in Springtime and many trails sign posted for walkers

A much improved drive now tarmac has been put down for the first part of the trail up to the Monastry. Although the dirt track for the remaining 4 km is more fun. Well posted and easy to get to. Wonderful pine forest surrounds the well presented remains. A good information board was helpful but was unexpected to be honest in Cyprus. No facilities up there other than peace and quiet.

Interesting historical place, a taste of the old Cyprus. I recommend going well it's not so hot, as some is in the sun.

Amazing experience, beautiful surroundings

These grounds along with the history, are tranquil and soulful. It's situated some kilometres away from the coast of Polis which is like the original Cyprus,used to be years ago. It is a ruined medieval Georgian Orthodox monastery dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Peaceful. Would be loved by many, especially artists.The walk is very pleasant, need plenty of water to drink and to wear a hat to protect from the sun.
