  • Had a lovely Boxing Day wander with my wife and mother in law at the monastery which is still active and contains a museum alongside lots of original carvings within a calming mountain setting. Worth the drive up for sure to take a break from the cities in Cyprus
  • Peaceful, high up in the hills, close to a cat sanctuary, spent a nice hour there. Church is very pretty
