St. Barnabas Monastery was built in the memory of St. Barnabas, who was the son of a Jewish family from Salamis. After going to Jerusalem to study, he converted to Christianity and returned to Cyprus preaching Christianity all over the island together with St. Paul. The Monastery consists of a church, courtyard, monastery rooms and the chapel in which St.Barnabas’ tomb lies. The Monastery is being currently used as a museum.
