"Forest Lady" Monastery-Ayia Napa Monastery, Cyprus Ayia Napa Monastery in Ayia Napa, Cyprus has a history of about 600 years and is a historic monastery. The city of Ayia Napa was developed from a small fishing village and is now a holiday resort in Cyprus. According to legend, the Ayia Napa Monastery was built in the 16th century. The monastery was built in a quiet forest, so it was called the "Forest Lady". The monastery is located in the middle of the city. Although the building has a history of hundreds of years, the architectural style is not incompatible with the surrounding buildings. Therefore, some people say that the history of a country's architectural development is to look at churches, monasteries, and palaces. The area of the monastery is small, and the architectural style is a European-style domed tower plus a main building. The exterior wall color and interior decoration are extremely low-key, reflecting the spiritual high self-discipline of the practitioners. The town does not have the hustle and bustle of the city. It is worth coming here for a spiritual prayer to experience the holiness and quiet beauty of the monastery. This is a paradise for pilgrims and a place for their spirits. Every day, many devout pilgrims come here on foot to carry out their most devout prayers and blessings.
