Light a Candle, Make a Wish

The easternmost monastery on the island of Cyprus, for hundreds of years it has served as an important resting place for followers of the Orthodox faith on the pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The oldest surviving part of the monastery is the small 15th century chapel which was built close to the shore and where to this day, the healing waters which St. Andrew is said to have brought forth can still be collected.

St. Andrew was the first man who was called to become a priest and as such received the title of “O Protoklidos”, which means “the first one to have been called”.

As an important multi-faith place of pilgrimage, visitors from all over the world to this monastery offer their devotion or pray for healing.
