Agia Moni Monastery

Located 38km northeast of Pafos (Paphos), Agia Moni Monastery is linked to the very origins of monasticism in Cyprus.

According to tradition, the monastery was founded around 300 AD by Agios Nikolaos and Agios Eftychios as a place of prayer and contemplation. A sacred relic - which had been given to Agios Nikolaos - and a piece of the cloak of the Virgin Mary were kept at the monastery until 1754.
