    Moni Hozoviotissis Monastery

    up there...

    Favorite thing: This 11th century white monastery clings to a cliff face above the east coast. You can visit a few rooms inside, and enjoy the view from up there.

    Fondest memory: You can reach it from Katapola or Hora, by bus. The bus stop is 5 minutes from the gate, and from there you still have a ten minute climbing to the top.
    Free entrance.
