  • A magnificent Orthodox monastery with amazing views! Suitable for those who want to calm down, to pray and to get closer to God. Only men are allowed, girls and women can stay at the bottom is a little chapel. Those men visited is like born again!!! What about their wives stays the beautiful views and a different wife!!!

  • It is definitely one of those places you must visit, arriving in Cyprus. Even if you're a woman and you will not be allowed inside, or you doleki from religion, in any case there is opened an amazing view of the island. And I have as a human for a long time denied by hrestianstva, servants of the Church caused a deep respect, feel that they are in fact dedicated life to God.

  • Nice view and a very tranquil place. Also there's a nice spot with a helicopter landing sign on the way with a view on this monastery. Please bear in mind that women, girls and men in sport uniform are not allowed inside.
  • Even though entry is only allowed to men (without camera and with long pants), its still worth the trip up the hill to enjoy the stunning views and peace and quiet!
  • Were closed in working hours. Not saying women can enter it at all.
  • Great view on all Larnaca area. Men in cycling (road) uniform are prohibited to enter.
  • Nice setting, but men only can enter????? And they claim to have a relic brought by St Helen???
