Trip Planner: Europe / Cyprus / Famagusta District / Ayia Napa / Ayia Napa Monastery
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. Using our custom trip planner, Ayia Napa attractions like Ayia Napa Monastery can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Ayia Napa Monastery reviews
Beautiful looking building in the Eastern part of Ayia Napa. Although it was closed for refurbishment when we visited April 2023, but you could peek inside through the gates. Looks very impressive.

The Monastery o was built in the form of a Medieval Castle around 1500 AD. From outside it looks quite well preserved. Unfortunately I did not have chance to discover inside as it is closed...

Historic place almost in the Center of Agia Napa. It is closed, but can be seen through the fence and from above. If you are in Agia Napa, it is worth a walk around the site.
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 !!!!
