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.

  • And again the road brought us the oldest Monastery-the monastery of the 12th century, which houses the miraculous icon of our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate ", according to the legend, written by the Apostle Luke. In General, under the name disputes subsided and there are several versions. It is believed that the apostle wrote 3 icons when a terrestrial life Boromateri, and 70 have already with the first three cribbing, placing them in the water and looking in the reflection on the water. One of them is stored in this monastery. She, as befits a great sanctuary, also covered with a blanket. The monastery is a small, but very cozy and boasting. The Church, too, albeit small, but homey and cheerful, has a beautiful carved iconostasis, pulpit and Bishop's throne. Striking large bright u-shaped balcony under the ceiling arches at the back of the Church-such I did not met anywhere yet. There is a Museum, a winery, a source, an observation deck and guest galleries. But another monastery is remembered and Judah tree growing at the entrance. As a guide, it blooms every time to Easter, when would not have died. And because we were just the day before, could see it blossoming.

  • Nice place but not very welcoming, inside church was nice but that was about it was hard to tell where else you could go, could not see nothing to do with winery The wine they sell in the shop was very reasonable Was a nice drive up and the views are very nice
  • Pretty little monastery hidden away at the top of the hill. While there I recommend visiting the Vouni Panayia winery which is only a short drive away. Apart from the church/chapel there is little to see in the monastery.
  • Visited the monastery on Thursday 18th June, its in a lovely spot with fantastic views of the mountains, well worth a visit. Please note to be able to go into the monastery you have to be suitable dressed i.e. no shorts or t-shirts.
  • Spiritual place
  • Very beautiful monastery. Struck by the peculiar architecture. Quiet and very quiet place which pacifies. Very beautiful views from here. Visit worth it. Especially if you go in the Kikskij monastery of pathos.
