What an amazing place, located in a beautiful village very tranquil and the views are outstanding. Not suitable for people with limited mobility due to the number of steps in the ruins

Narrow lane leading up to the monastery but car park nearby, not suitable for people with limited mobility due to the walk to it. Lovely little monastery within the mountains and views across the sea.

It's worth coming here just for the peace and quiet and air in the hills. A lovely village and a fascinating old abbey. Easy to get a taxi from Kyrenia if you don't have a car. Try to go quiet early before any tour buses...More

After looking round the monastery walk up the main Street to the old mill cafe. A lovely historic building and fresh homemade food. Yummy. Only 100 metres up a slight gradient but well worth it
