I loved the ambiance of this wonderful monastery. Juxtaposed with the bars, clubs and restaurants it is a place I will never forget. No charge for entry - a detailed leaflet is available to explain its history. Not to be missed. It is a spiritual beacon amidst the tattoo parlours and nail salons.

Not much to see and do but a beautiful way to step back into time and capture the feeling of life long ago. Quiet place for reflection. Informative signs placed throughout without taking away from the authentic, well preserved setting.

visit The monastery which is situated in the down town of Agia Napa. Why? If you do not have other reason, probably because the place has the same name! But, I think that the holy place who can bring you peace in soul is better reason. Ask someting from God and maybe you will be hapy!?

we were staying just outside Aiya Napa and went for a stroll. to be honest it is a resort town with the usual amenities. However, there is also a beautiful monastery. it has been restored and is a haven in this modern town. very well preserved and informative as one strolls around it.

Worth a visit if you are in Ayia Napa. Free to get in and lots of informative signs to read as you walk around this historic picturesque place. Only spent 20 mins or so here but thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my young children as they explored it!
