The Troodos Mountains are also home to the Kykkos Monastery at 1140 metres above sea level. The monastery came to fame primarily because of the miraculous icon of Virgin Mary, said to have brought rain in times of drought. Kykkos can be visited, although entry into the monastery requires strictly appropriate clothing. Those who prefer to party are well provided for in Ayia Napa, which is about a two-hour drive from Paphos. Boasting particular popularity among the younger generation, this town and resort in the southeast of the island is famous for its endless string of bars and clubs. Whether culture, beach life or partying – southern Cyprus has something to suit all preferences.
