Places of interest in Agia Napa

 

Macronissos Tombs

The site consists of 19 rock - cut tombs, a small sanctuary &

an ancient quarry situated west of Agia Napa in the Macronissos area. The targets of illegal digging, the tombs were badly looted over the years. Archaeologists believe the dead were placed in clay sarcophagi that were originally covered with three flat tiles. The tombs had a rectangular entrance originally closed with one or two slabs. Most of the chambers are almost identical with a rectangular trench in the middle and three benches at the side. The tombs were used during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Pyres were found on the surface, characteristic of Greek burial customs. The sanctuary is a simple rectangular enclosure, made of large irregular blocks.

 

Agia Napa Monastery

This charming medieval monastery dedicated to ''Our Lady of the Forests'' stands in the middle of the village of Agia Napa surrounded by a high wall. Both the village and the monastery take their name from the ancient Greek word for wooded valley "Napa"– a reference to the morphology of the area in the past. Built like a medieval castle around 1500 AD, Agia Napa Monastery is the best known landmark of the village as well of the surrounding area. The monastery is partly built underground and cut into the rock. The ancient sycamore tree in front of the south gate is believed to be over 600 years old.

 

Avgorou Ethnographic Museum

The Avgorou Ethnographical Museum is in an old two - storey traditional house with a large courtyard situated a short distance from Agia Napa. Exhibiting various items, from furniture to the old silk wheels, it portrays the way of life of previous generations.

 

“Thalassa” Sea Museum

The "Thalassa" Sea Museum in the centre of Agia Napa is housed in a modern multi - purpose building with noteworthy architecture, and aims to promote awareness of the marine heritage of Cyprus from prehistoric times to the present.
