  • Donkeys can be found and fed here right from one's car.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Extraordinary natural place and church despite lootings.
