Monastery is approximately 40km from Larnaka and
it is perched on a rocky peak. Stavrovouni means ‘Mountain
of the Cross’. According to tradition it was
founded in the 4th
Century by Saint Helena, mother of Constantine the Great,
who left a fragment of the holy cross to the monastery.
The brotherhood is extremely devout, keeping vows as
strict as those of the Mount
Athos brotherhood in Greece. Women are not allowed
in the monastery though men can visit daily from sunrise
