  • New restoration activity has made this old monastery a good choice to visit. Must visit if travelled up to the northeast point of Zafer. Nice area.

  • Great monastery, but partly closed, open church only due a reconstruction. On neighborhood is a market place - general offer handmade products, fruits and many other goods.

  • So unusual to see a Christian building in use in N Cyprus. Perhaps they allow it to provide an attraction to tourists for the numerous locals stalls. Elsewhere the churches are generally locked up and falling into ruins. The tragedy of Cyprus is to be seen everywhere with ruination in North and South of houses and religious buildings. I have seen pigs in a mosque and dog/pigeon muck in churches where open doors creak in the wind. Here at least visitors can see religious devotion permitted in a fine building. Lots of stalls outside and a few wild donkeys to avoid or fe d at your peril. Carrots and souvenirs for sale. The road condition is a challenge. Some attractive spring flowers.
  • The drive up is beautiful, make sure you have something for the donkeys to eat. They love coming up to the window so be prepared as they're not shy! The monastery is under maintenance at the moment, (April 2022) so do check before you go to see if this is still ongoing. They have a lovely market outside where you can purchase many Cypriot homemade things.
