After looking for a place to visit, I came across this place where it is not far from Paphos, very impressive place, so relaxing & tranquil, there's an entrance fee of 2.50 euros, dress appropriately is required.

A beautiful setting with panoramic views. An interesting small museum of religious artifacts. The walk up the steps to the old monastery is worth it to see the cells the monks lived in.
