Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, Paphos
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
See Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery with its own winery, featuring vividly colored orthodox frescoes and collections of priceless relics and icons. According to legend, a local monk came across a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary painted by Luke the Evangelist that was washed out to sea; he collected it and dedicated this monastery to the icon in 1152. The present building, which dates to 1770, hosts an important Cypriot religious ceremony and holds fine vintage wine. View a gold- and silver-plated icon of the Virgin Mary at the gallery, and browse through Byzantine and post-Byzantine collections. You'll also find a rustic cafe on site. Put Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery into our Paphos vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The history of the Monastery dates back to 1152 and is really a fascinating story and miracle. Ignatius a hermit during the feast of the Assumption saw a light in the distance to find St. Luke’s icon ...  more »
  • Very beautiful monastery. Located on the road from Paphos to the monastery of Kykkos. The monastery itself is very ancient and was founded in honor of the miraculous manner until the icon depicting the Virgin Mary. Current abode is a monastery belong to 18 century. Currently there are no monks in the monastery, but only the Rector and Chief Curator of the monastery. Tourists a little, quiet spot. Has its own winery. Blessed place. Is required to visit.
