Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, Paphos

(4.4/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • We are not orthodox but when we entered the Monastery, we feel the tranquility and peace right away. The Monastery had a few visitors while we were there so you could stroll around it, take your time ...  more »
  • It was the first monastery, which we visited in Cyprus, and the impression of him so far is the most unforgettable. I must say that I am very far from religion, therefore valued this place from a purely aesthetic point of view. Firstly, struck the terrain itself-elegant picturesque mountains, stunning mountain air, which cannot be nadyshatsja. Though it were Sunday, but there were no crowds of tourists, as for example in the same Kikkskom monastery. A secluded place with a very relaxed atmosphere in which every corner exudes serenity. Well maintained courtyard, as in historical films about those centuries when ruled by Kings, Knights and balls. Very pleasant to walk through the tranquil koridorchikam, you just keep quiet and soak up the wonderful atmosphere. Somehow even you calm down internally, as if time stops. Before entering the monastery there is a terrace, which offers panoramic views of the mountains, in the back yard you can also examine the terrain. Just before the monastery stand small tents with all kinds of local delicacies that are definitely worth a try. Were we tour, and we are very sorry that we all have set aside just half an hour, I would have gladly stayed there longer. Here is how I am not a religious person, but still came out of there with something like oduhotvoreniem. I advise everyone to visit this monastery, as for me it is one of the most beautiful places in Cyprus in terms of internal sensations.
