Ayia Napa Monastery, Ayia Napa

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Once nestled in a dense forest and visited only by hunters, Ayia Napa Monastery features a church, a hiding place, and a well from the Byzantine and Venetian eras. The monastery you can see today was constructed in the 15th century, with certain areas built underground and cut into the rock. Unlike most churches and monasteries in Cyprus, this one has survived the Ottoman rule, and it underwent extensive repairs during the 20th century. At the south gate, look for an old sycamore tree--it is believed to be more than 600 years old.

  • Accidentally went into the evening, when he went for a walk. The monastery is a very unusual inside. There is something special. Beautiful, quiet, very nice garden. Be sure to take some time and go to the monastery, admission is free, within so simple and unusual after our churches, where all in gold.

  • The grandchildren were completely fascinated. The Cobbles outside the monastery was exciting. When we entered the monastery they put themselves in a klosterstol and was completely quiet in this new world for them.

  • Beautiful place
  • Vintage, (14-15 century), in the style of the Venetian Renaissance, Anya-Napa-built on the site where in antiquity the cave Hunter found an icon of the Theotokos, where she is now stored and is miraculous (Panagia Napa) monks is not here, but the Church-serving here kept the miracle belt which helps in childbirth, and the veil which St. Veronica gave Jesus on the road to Golgotha. Very good atmosphere. A beautiful courtyard with ancient 500-year-old plane tree and a 600-year-old Sycamore fikusom (fig tree) a total of 9 churches are on the territory of the monastery. Definitely recommend to visit!

  • A small, beautiful monastery with a rich history. Located in the heart of Ayia Napa monastery inlet. worth sikomora (mulberry tree), growing at least 600 years. Now at the monastery of Ayia Napa is not the monks, but the Church is valid and open for visits. Agia Napa monastery many pilgrims come to bow down before the face of the mother of God.
