A must see while in Northern Cyprus, a very beautiful and peaceful place. The surrounding village is also worth exploring and I recommend the 'Bella Moon' restaurant.

This old monastery located in an old picturesque town at the top of the hills from Kirenia. The ruins are surrounded by mountains and the view over the coast is amazing. Next to the monastery there one of the best restaurants in the region.
