Tucked up into a mountain, Agios Neophytos Monastery features frescoes, icons, and exhibits of religious items, like manuscripts, priestly garments, books, pottery, and maps. Founded by Cypriot monk and writer Neophytos in 1159, the monastery also includes a church built 200 years later that was dedicated to Virgin Mary. See the cave with Neophytos's cell, his rock-table, stone bed, and his grave. Don't miss the enclosure that he carved into the mountain, which contains Byzantine frescoes dating back to the 12th century.

Soak it all in, the beautiful calming views that this place can offer for free. Bear in mind, respect the NO PHOTOS/VIDEOS rule at least inside the Enkleistra and the church. Please come in decent clothing.
I love buildings in the rock, always look mysterious. This one here is really underestimated as not many people come here. It's good since we were here alone, but very strange. I liked the frescoes in the cell and the museum as well as the church's exterior. Very very nice
