This enchanting monastery is dedicated to "Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate" and was founded in 1152 by monk Ignatios who found a miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary off the shore of Pafos. Legend has it that it was thrown into the sea in Asia Minor during the iconoclastic period and drifted by the waves to Pafos. The present building dates to 1770.

An impressive religious ceremony is held here on 15 August, on the occasion of Virgin Mary Dormition Day.
