Ayia Napa – Protaras


The windmills made their first appearance in Paralimni in the beginning of the twentieth century and were used by farmers to pump water up for the irrigation of their fields. Soon they multiplied in number, and as a result, Protaras, its most productive area, is often referred to as the land of windmills. The windmills were later replaced by mechanical pumps. Today, the large number of windmills testifies the productivity of the past while affording a quaint, nostalgic beauty to the landscape of the area.

Ayia Napa Monastery

A landmark in the heart of Ayia Napa, the Monastery is the most important sight in town. It is easily accessible by all visitors, as it is located in the central square, about two kilometers away from the Harbour. Among some of the well known visitors of the monastery was the Greek Nobel laureate Giorgos Seferis, who was astounded by the beauty he faced when he visited the place. He decided to dedicate a hymn to the Monastery, and thus wrote the poem "Ayia Napa B" which can be found in his collection of poems “Emerologio Katastromatos C” (Logbook III). There is an uncertainty as to when the Monastery was initially built. The cave, the hiding place and the well, witness the presence of a Christian community there since the Byzantine years (11th century). The first element of the temple (13th-14th century) was built during the Frankish period, while the rest of the Monastery was completed during the 15th century. However, the Monastery as it stands nowadays is a construction of the 15th century, a time during which Cyprus was under the Venetian regime.

Ayia Napa Harbour

The picturesque Ayia Napa Harbour is undoubtedly one of the main features of the town, after the Medieval Monastery and Cape Greco. Many decades ago, the harbour was just a small bay with a few fishing boats. In the beginning of the 70s, the first breakwater was constructed which basically marked the beginning of the current development of the harbour . Nowadays, the Harbour is fully renovated with a large fleet of fishing boats, speed boats, sailboats and cruise ships. The land area is appropriately formed with pedestrian lanes which lead to the two lighthouses. Colourful and typically picturesque, the area around the harbour includes an open theatre, fountains, quaint cafes, fish taverns and restaurants. The ambiance around the harbour is a real ornament and it is rightfully classified among the most contemporary and picturesque harbours in Cyprus.

The Ayia Napa Aqueduct

The Agia Napa Aqueduct is one of the most important monuments preserved within the boundaries of the Agia Napa municipality. The Aqueduct supplied the monastery and the whole region with water for hundreds of years. The monument in its present state of preservation is an alteration of the original Roman aqueduct, occurred during the Frankish period when the monastery was built. The source of the water is to be found somewhere on the Northeastern hills of Ayia Napa. Up to the year 1974 the original visible route of the channel was marked by a barrel-shaped structure at the locality of ‘Mana tou Nerou’, known traditionally as the House of the Greeks. From that point the aqueduct ran all the way to the monastery following the natural contours of the bedrock.

Church services are held on the 1st of July and the 1st of November.
