  • Located in the natural park which access and with appropriate gap and actually a pleasant. Approximately 35 km single lane of asphalt covered by holes put a strain not just tyres but also circles. One advantage is the paltry traffic on a road where bear left (Cyprus English Guide) is an enterprise. Then engaged in the slalom between holes, 50 years ' tractors, flocks of sheep and goats (crossing roadway), still entranced by the landscape truly bucolic but especially after yet another curve from the overview on Golden Beach, don't be surprised of the Donkey at the window that begs a carrot. And why the monastery now largely restored it has services and surrounded by stalls where we offer everything from icons to cosmetics. All for the pilgrimage (real why get here by bus is faithful and tourists Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians). SUGGESTIVE

  • As has already been written-nothing special. Spring water is a lime-but who wants to let him believe. From what I know it's spring water (from the source) is cold. The whole charm in these pets-their organization to force the snack is impressive. A gang of wild donkeys in a very forceful and thoughtful way stops the car and forces the food-funny situations can be seen. A lot of straganików +++ merchandise at reasonable prices (although I've seen cheaper).

  • Compared with other monasteries on the island is nothing special Andrzej does not offer. The Church in April was closed and under renovation. The place is worth reaches its Golden Beach for views of the Cape and wild asses, which occur on the parking lot searching for something to eat in the newcomer's:)

  • The view was nice as was the interior of the monetary. However, there were no donkeys to be seen. The "fountain" was just a hose pouring into what was essentially an open sewer. Many half built buildings and homeless families selling tourist goods from tents. Wouldn't recommend visiting this location unless you are very keen to say you been to the end of the Karpass otherwise there is very little reason to go here.
  • Donkeys can be found and fed here right from one's car.
  • Although the monastery had fallen into a certain state of disrepair in recent years, UN funding is in place to pay for refurbishment, along with the Hala Sultan Tekke near Larnaca. Renovation work should have started in 2009. However disputes over who should do the work, and who should oversee the work delayed things, and a start was not made till September 2014. The work was undertaken by two construction companies, one Greek Cypriot and one Turkish Cypriot. The work was overseen by the Church of Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriot Efkaf administration. The first phase concerned the restoration of the main church and the building of a new north arcade. On November 30th 2016, St Andrew's day, the completed first phase was handed back to the Church of Cyprus, and a service was held. There is still some way to go. Phase two starts in 2017 and will see the chapel and the fountain close to the shore renovated. Phase three will see the restoration of the buildings to the north of the church, and the final will involve the completion of external works below the main road, and landscaping.
  • We arrived when the premises were under construction, so we couldnt see much, but the location and views are stunning.
  • Commercial, a bit overrated but a nice and active church community and a orthodox church with some prime examples of icon artwork.
