“Pretty location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Beautiful abbey remains set in a village high up with spectacular views. A good dining area overlooking Kyrenia and the sea.
9TL per person entry plus children go free.
A pleasant place to spend an hour or two away from the beach.

“Beautiful place don't miss it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a truly gorgeous place to visit, wandered around the Abby which is astounding then had a limonata at the mulberry and fig tree, served by such a lovely old gentleman, who treated us very kindly. Te views from here are exceptional and I would advise anyone who is in the area to make the journey here

“Could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

They charge a lot to enter here (9TL) but do not seem to spend any of the money on cleaning and upkeep of the place. It is a lovely monastery but the stairs up to the roof are dangerous and need maintenance.
They also charge for parking.
Some nice cafes opposite that give great views.
Worth a visit
