This monastery is about 10 kms northwest of Paphos.
I have visited it recently while I was in the Paphos region visiting some cousins of mine.

It contains some of the finest Byzantine frescoes from the 12th to the 15th centuries.
The later monastery church contains some of the best examples of post-Byzantine icons of the 16th century and don't leave without visiting the very interesting eclesiastical museum.

Cats:
I have never seen in my life so many cats, and I was surprised to see in the parking lot a sign saying that people can feed the cats in that certain spot.
Cats of so many colours and so beautiful were scattered all around that place.
Don't forget to take something along for them if you go!
