Agios Neophytos Monastery Museum

Located about 9km north of Pafos (Paphos), the ecclesiastical museum at the monastery of Agios Neophytos exhibits a variety of valuable relics, including important icons and other religious artefacts.

The monastery itself was founded by the Cypriot recluse and writer Neofytos around 1200, in what used to be a secluded location at the head of the picturesque valley.

The hermit carved a cave out of the mountains called the ‘Enkleistra’, which is covered with some of the finest examples of Byzantine frescoes that date back from the 12th to the 15th centuries, whilst the later church also contains some of the finest Post-Byzantine icons dating to the 16th century.
