A historic monastery dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is located about 40 kms from Nicosia.
The interior of the church is decorated with religious icons, chandeliers, stone floors and wall frescoes.
Currently there are 20 to 30 orthodox monks here.

I have visited it recently but after many years there were so many changes in the buildings and the surround area that I could not tell where I was. It is beautiful anyhow, and worth visiting while up on the mountains.
