A holy place for Greek Cypriots and orthodox in General. Located on Troodos mountains, surrounded by forest this is place you should not missed if in the area. The icons are very good preserved and Saint Mary (Panayia) icon is consider a miracle

...but also a place to enjoy the surrounding nature by walking around the grounds of the monastery. A location not to be missed is where there is an organized area for picnic and barbeque - just 300 m away.
