Ancient Monument of the Holy Cross, Kallepeia

Published 16th of July, 2021

Kallepeia is a lovely village to the north of Paphos, just past Minthis Hills Golf Resort. It features a number of nice taverns as well as a well-hidden viewpoint that overlooks the surrounding valleys. If you take the path up to see it you will also find the remains of an ancient monastery.

Agios Georgios

The grounds here are very well kept. We didn't see any litter.

Up The Stairs

Holy Cross

This is what you will find at the top of the hill. Well, there is a sign here too, with a map of Paphos, as well as some shaded seating. But this is the ruin.

We first found this place when we were geocaching before we moved to Cyprus. The cache is still here, somewhere...

We've visited a few shrine caves on our travels through Cyprus. Most of them are fairly shallow though, and don't require a torch to explore. The Agios Konstantinos and St. Helen chapel is different. If you enter the cave there, you better come equipped with illumination...
