  • St. Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum St. Barnbas who brought Christianity to Cyprus became the first Christian apostle in Cyprus a mural, very old, showing Barnabas history, which was born in Salamis, Cyprus found in the church with many icons (many unknown Saints and very old icons) have never seen such a large collection of old icons in such a small place, (we visit many churches and monasteries on our travels). In the monastery there is also a small museum showing archaeological finds from the area and Salamis. A small garden and a small café. The toilet costs as usual 0.5 euros go to the small chapel outside the church there is the tomb downstairs, at that place it is said that Barnabas has been lying in all years he was "missing". A powerful experience. In the monastery there is only one priest left. No monks. The place is historically interesting. This monastery is on its way from Famagusta to Karpaz, so it is definitely worth stopping and visiting the monument important to visit these Christian sites so they do not disappear. Surprised that the Turks show it up, may be due to the revenue they receive, who knows.
