My fav monastery in Cyprus. It’s not commercialised and it has amazing views. They also produce some very good wine, especially the red one (Agios Elias).

Second visit to this peaceful and charming place.
The setting is high in the hills so gives amazing views with time and space to sit and contemplate.
Plenty of reasonably priced wine on offer to purchase.
Unfortunately the cafe next door does not match up.
Unless you want chips the only option left is Greek salad which we found lacking in the usual Cypriot standards. ( tomato, lettuce and white cabbage drowning in olive oil), served with bread containing green mould spots.
And sadly when I discreetly made staff aware, I was given the cold shoulder and charged full price. They then tried to attract me to their stall outside to purchase fruits, veg and souvenirs! ( it was a firm but polite no!)
Please do not let this put you off visiting the monastery though!!!

Really worth a visit - we actually went to see it while on a tour around Easter and they were getting ready with a flower arrangement. It was so interesting to see. There is also a winery below ground which was where wine was produced in the past so a nice bit of history. Finally, the view is beautiful from here. The monk we met was friendly and happy to answer questions (we asked via our guide who spoke Greek).

Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed visiting here during our holiday in Cyprus. The buildings, chapel, and views of the surrounding area were amazing. One of the priests/monks engaged with us as much as he could (his English was very good but he knew his limitations), and we really enjoyed the things he showed us such as the 1770 doors and the wall access to the altar. A lady working in the shop was equally fantastic, spending time explaining the different icons and symbols, along with the history of the place.

This place easily scores 5 out of 5. I score myself 1 out of 5 though because I forgot to bring cash and so missed an opportunity to take away some of their wine. I'd certainly go back given the opportunity one day!

This was my favourite day out. What a brilliant lot of people we met. Thanks to the lady that translated for us and for the monk that showed us around. They were so warm and welcoming and so happy for us to be there. I have been to plenty of monasteries in different counties and I had the best welcome here. Blessings to you all!

Quite small but perfectly formed with lovely views over the forested mountains. Parking is limited but fortunately we were there on a very quiet day.

This monastery is open all day for the visitors . Is also known as one of the best wineries in the region . Two of their wines were awarded. It is well worth to visit the museum in which it has two stores, upstairs they keep the old treasures of the monastery as well as icons from the 17th century’s restored by the older father Dionysios.

I visited as part of an organised trip to the Troodos. Dedicated to "Mary, our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate" the Monastery is set in the hills and has lovely views across the valleys.

The small Church is beautiful with many icons. There is a shop selling wine and a cafe just outside.

Just came here. There is a few small kittens and 2 mothers outside the monastery. All afraid. And one of the kittens is smaller than the others and very sick. What kind of a monastery does not care for the living beings around it?!? It is all about profit, with stands and a bar outside. What about the values they should have???? Absolutely none!

Well worth he run up the twisty road. Visited many times. They provide wraparounds for ladies who might not be dressed appropriately for a monastery e.g wearing shorts.
There is a panoramic view across the mountains from the rear terrace which has a fountain and beautiful mosaic paving.
