Very closed to Paphow but it seems like you are far away. Lovely, peaceful and the smell of the forest was amazing. Very good to see a working monastery.

From Phafos you drive up to the monastery at the foot of the mountain. It’s a quite large area beautifully located. It was first build in 1300 by the eremite nefytos how also was a writer. He carved a cave that was the first monastery.
