  • Also here is of course that you should watch it. The collection of icons is impressive. Unfortunately it is also here that it is incomprehensible why the environment is so smoggy. A bit more cleanliness and the overall impression would be hard to beat.

  • This monastery is also an archaeological museum fascinating, with objects sometimes very found around old (salamis and enkomi). coffee in the garden... a very nice place.

  • Share from the 5th, 10th, 15th century, murals from the 19th century. The companions of Paul, Barnabas gewidmt. Finally the monastery of Antioch was late, but, regardless. Interesting presentations on the walls, mystical atmosphere. Pleasant, since only a few travellers in the North, these sites are not crowded. About 100 metres away: Also featured grave.

  • It's a museum and monastery. The entrance is not free of charge. In the inside there is a monastery where the Holly icons show and a museum where archeological artifacts show. And a little café that bakes gözleme, hot beverages and a little gift shop. On the other side is saint Barnabas's tomb, it's approx. 100 meter away. Tomb entrance is free of charge.
  • A beautiful church with the tomb of Saint Barnaba nearby that is sadly in a bad condition. Inside is a small cafe.
  • Very beautiful place with a very nice garden to have a tea in a peaceful atmosphere.
  • Nice place an old Greek orthodox church with a museum and tombs near by.
  • Obviously very historic. However, also a little neglected.
