The old monastery of Agia Napa

was my main reason to drive all the way to this south-east-end of Cyprus.It dates back to the 16th century, when Cyprus was a part of Venice.According to the ledgends the monastery was built at a place, where hunters found water and also an old icon that was lost about 700 years ago. The monastery was partly destroyed, when the Turques took over Cyprus, the monks had been expelled , but the local people continued to use the church.
There is no entrancefee to this monastery !
