Few Words about the Monastery
On a panoramic hilltop of Cyprus, like a large eyrie planted by the hand of Hod, the renowned and one-of-a-kind Holy Monastery of Stavrovouni has risen for centuries atop the lofty and precipitous mount Olympus. It is also located in the Troodos mountain range, which contains several of the most beautiful monasteries in Cyprus. It is located on a rugged mountain in the center of south-east Cyprus, on an isolated peak resembling the pinnacle of a steeple, with no neighboring peaks that are higher or more substantial. This peak, with an average altitude of approximately 700 meters, makes the Monastery visible and affords every visitor a magnificent view in all directions.
