Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery, Paphos

(440+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
