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
Lovely area just outside the partying clubbing central Ayia Napa is so loved for! This is a doable walk up the hill and you get beautiful views from this point!
The inside of the monastery is very beautiful. Worth a visit if you are taking a walk around the city.
