Lovely old monastery in the middle of Aya Napa. When we visited, many of the shops and restaurants around were closed but it must be a welcome peaceful area in the height of summer.

Located in the centre of Ayia Napa. Its a renovated monastery. Marvellous Sycamore Tree outside that was planted in the 16th century when the monastery was built. It is very obviously a place of worship and revered by the Cypriot people.

Very historical, from the moment you walk into this ancient monastery you can feel the past crawl through your feet and up towards your body. Both eerie and beautiful to walk around, you really do get a sense of ancient spirituality.
