Stunning interior and wonderful gothic architecture with plenty of scope for photos. The chandeliers are magnificent and the views from the monastery looking over the bay are spectacular

Lovely chapel in a lovely village steeped in local shops and couple of restaurants. You need a guide to tell you about it as no information around so you wouldn't know without them.

Lovely place to visit. High on the hills with fantastic, panoramic views. Set in a lovely, tranquil village. A place you really should visit.

I suggest You drive until ozankøy and after just take 2km walk up. You will meet old cemetery, olive trees-old and many, You will feel local streets, mandarin and citrus gardens. and after monastery visit is like to reach high :))) enjoy!

We travelled here by coach from Kyrenia, then just a short walk from the carpark. The buildings are historically very interesting, with good views looking over towards the coast.

It is not fair that they close the church's doors at 4 when they say that it's open until 5. But it is certainly worthwhile to visit the remains of this abbey

It is always a pleasure to revisit this lovely monument to the country's past. The restoration work is beautifully executed. The whole complex is situated in lovely grounds offering spectacular views of the mountains on one side and the north Cyprus coast on the other....More

People with mobility issues be mindful that it is quite a climb from the Car Park to the village and Monestry at the top of the hill.However, if you can manage it the Monestry built in the 13th century is well worth the climb
