Aiyos Neophytos Monastary - Review
Neophytos is remembered for the historical records he kept of the crusades contemporary to his time. Religious early in his life, he tried various times over the course of his young life to take up a hermitic lifestyle. When he finally founded his hermitage in 1159 in the hills north of Paphos, his reputation spread to the city and a little over a decade later he was formally ordained a priest and the monastery was founded. Lovely Byzantine frescoes and enchanting icons in the Enkleistra and the church draw thousands of visitors every year. The tomb of Neophytos is supposed to have healing powers. The place has been made quite tourist friendly in recent years. Quaint little paths have little corners where you can sit down with a book. It’s tranquil, removed from the world, and there is a sense of time stopping here. It’s a gem of a place.

Aiyos Neophytos Monastary, Paphos Reviews
Peaceful, serene and beautiful. I could have spent all day at the coffee shop in the parking lot. Fabulous coffee and snacks if a little pricey. But the monastery is well worth a visit and it is very inexpensive to see. It will take your breath away.
The beatiful monastery. Not so far from Paphos by car.
