Once nestled in a dense forest and visited only by hunters, Ayia Napa Monastery features a church, a hiding place, and a well from the Byzantine and Venetian eras. The monastery you can see today was constructed in the 15th century, with certain areas built underground and cut into the rock. Unlike most churches and monasteries in Cyprus, this one has survived the Ottoman rule, and it underwent extensive repairs during the 20th century. At the south gate, look for an old sycamore tree--it is believed to be more than 600 years old.

Ayia Napa Monastery Reviews
War sehr überrascht in Ayia Napa so ein schönes Kloster zu finden, noch dazu mit freiem Eintritt, Kloster ist super renoviert und wirklich sehenswert more »Was very surprised to find in Ayia Napa such a beautiful monastery, plus with free admission, monastery is super renovated and really worth seeing
Внутрь не попали, там проводят работы по реконструкции, так что скоро будет новодел. С наружи тоже выглядит новоделом. Можно походить вокруг или подняться на площадку над ним и посмотреть от туда. Раб... more »Inside did not hit, there carry out works on reconstruction, so that soon will be a novate. The outside also looks like a good. You can walk around or climb the pad over it and look from there. The workers could not say the date of completion of the work, most likely this year may not open. I enclose the photo of the plate.
the monastery is situated in the center of the city. It is an old and interesting archaeological vestige. I was impressed by the entrance tree (Ficus Sycomorus) that is very old I think it has a few hundred years !!!!
... the place does give a calming, for some an eiree feel when visiting some of the abandoned rooms. the place is full of history to include miracles and love. nice temporary refuge from the hustle and bustle of this party town.
