The history of the Monastery dates back to 1152 and is really a fascinating story and miracle. Ignatius a hermit during the feast of the Assumption saw a light in the distance to find St. Luke’s icon of the Virgin in a cave which had been lying for four centuries. With his fellow hermits Ignatius built the Monastery. When you... More

It's never easy to tell which monasteries are working and which are not - ie, which still house monks. No monks were seen here, but the church was open and the icon lamps lit. This is a very compact place with the lovely church seemingly crammed into the cloisters with little room to spare. The winery museum is fascinating and... More

We chanced upon this whilst travelling back from seeing freindly. It was stunning. The church is very interesting and the views are wonderful. There is plenty of information and the wine is goods and excellent value. Make sure you explore around every nook and cranny as there are balconies and terraces that are hidden away. Well worth a visit.

Filed with history this Monastery has the amazing views on a clear day coupled with its unique quietness. Surreal feeling of being at peace. Has a small winery museum and the monks still make thei own wine.

We stopped off here for a short break up in the Mountains. Great to see how the residents live and the splendor of the buildings. Worth a visit

I loved this monastery! Me and my partner (both 23) visited it as part of the trip to Kykkos monastery but I much much preferred this one! It’s set in the Troodos mountains with lovely views and you go through a couple of lovely traditional Cypriot villages on the way up. The winery downstairs is so lovely and traditional and... More

A breathtaking place and a must see for any visitor to Cyprus. Ensure that you are covered up before you go as this is a place of worship. No shorts allowed. Just go and wander round, it's magical. The carvings in the church are amazing. Not what I expected at all but I was surprised by the whole ambience of... More
