Saint Neofytos Monastery

EXCURSIONS / Religious Monuments / Paphos / Saint Neofytos Monastery
The history of the Monastery of Agios Neofytos is well documented in the autobiography of its founder, the Cypriot hermit and writer Neofytos.

It is built in what used to be a secluded location at the head of a picturesque valley, about 10 kilometres northwest of Pafos (Paphos). The “Egkleistra”, an enclosure carved out of the mountain by the hermit at the end of the 12th century, contains some of the finest Byzantine frescoes from the 12th to the15th centuries.

The later monastery church contains some of the best examples of post - Byzantine icons of the 16th century, and there is also a very interesting ecclesiastical museum.
