Protaras Cyprus

Historic Protaras

Known as “the island of the Saints” Cyprus is filled with churches and monasteries, many of which are found in the surrounding area of Protaras. The tiny, iconic church of Prophet Elias is built up on a 100 metres high hill.

There are 300 steps leading up to the church but the breath-taking panoramic views of Protaras, Cyprus and the sea stretching as far as the eye can see, are definitely worth the climb. Further more, the Monastery of Ayia Napa is one of the prettiest, and definitely worth a visit. Found in the heart of Ayia Napa town, it was originally built around a cave, where an icon of the Virgin Mary was said to have been found. Later the Venetians built it up and included a scenic water canal and a charming central fountain.
