  • Surrounded by pine trees, noyeraies and vineyards, this monastery built in the 18th century and recently restored where still live many worth visiting monks. I got the chance to be the only tourist. Quiet so. Besides the environment, beautiful icons of value.

  • It is a great place to visit and pay your respect to Jesus Christ. It is located deep inside the Troodos mountain. 
  • This monastery is one of my favorites since I was small and I think of the most emblematic monasteries of Cyprus and they have each pilgrim to visit!!
