Ayios Neophytos Monastery in Paphos – The Cave Monastery
Ayios Neophytos Monastery was supposedly found by a Cypriot Saint in the late 1100s. The monastery and its room were carved out of the mountain by the Saint and hence is also known as the cave monastery. It is just under a 20 minute drive from Paphos and is on top of a 900 m hill. The drive up to this hill is excellent offering good views of Paphos and its surroundings.
