Sinti Monastery Revisited
Sinti Monastery is one of the hidden jewels of the Cyprus countryside. A couple of years ago we published a blog by our friend Max, who did a nice road-trip to the site. We recently returned, with our drone, to see how it was coping with the pandemic...
The Monastery From The River
We made this trip last December. Now it will be a lot greener here. When I posted some pictures there was a lot of chatter about how to get here, so I decided to do another blog about it. There is also a film showing you how to get here, as well as some drone footage.
The river is remarkably dry, given the time of year. There has been very little rain this winter. This means that there are plenty of ways to get to the monastery.
The above map looks a bit like a ski route map, but the colours are not significant. The black route is the first featured in the film we made, running from Galataria to the river and from there the monastery. You can see on this map the church mentioned in the film. Use the button below to find out more information.
The red route is the road from Salamiou. The green route runs along the riverbed, up from Nata. Finally, the blue link goes up to Old Pentalia.
The Monastery Awaits
This is what is waiting for you when you get here.
Getting To Sinti Monastery
This was our film of the journey. If you plan using the Galataria route, you should definitely watch so you know where to turn when you reach the river.
