Kykos Monastery

Listed under Churches & Abbeys in Cyprus.

Pin It

Such a beautiful, remote peaceful place with spectacular views. Almost every square foot of the building's walls have been hand painted by the monks. There's also a museum within the monastary and shops and restaurants nearby. The drive up from Limassol was an experience in itself, the scenery was just breathtaking..well worth a visit.
