See Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery with its own winery, featuring vividly colored orthodox frescoes and collections of priceless relics and icons. According to legend, a local monk came across a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary painted by Luke the Evangelist that was washed out to sea; he collected it and dedicated this monastery to the icon in 1152. The present building, which dates to 1770, hosts an important Cypriot religious ceremony and holds fine vintage wine. View a gold- and silver-plated icon of the Virgin Mary at the gallery, and browse through Byzantine and post-Byzantine collections. You'll also find a rustic cafe on site.

Worth seeing, small and with sense of times. I was there in the end of April, something like cafeteria was before the entrance, but yet was closed. They say they have a very good own wine, there is a shop inside to buy it. Toilet facilities as well are available an free.
Its a really escape🙂 Quiet..clean and fresh air.. Freedom🌞 I recommend it👍
