Around 9km north of Paphos, the ecclesiastical museum situated within the Agios Neophytos monastery showcases a diverse collection of precious artifacts, including significant icons and various religious items. The monastery itself was established by Neofytos, a reclusive Cypriot writer, around the year 1200, in a once-secluded location at the entrance of a charming valley.

The hermit meticulously carved a cave called the 'Enkleistra' into the mountains, adorned with the finest examples of Byzantine frescoes dating from the 12th to the 15th centuries. Additionally, the later church houses some of the most exquisite Post-Byzantine icons, which date back to the 16th century.
