Fodor's Review

The romantic ruins of the former Bella Pais Manastiri (Abbey of Bellapais), built in the 12th century by the Lusignans, are just as impressive as those at St. Hilarion Kalesi. They lie on a mountainside 6 km (four miles) southeast of Girne, overlooking the coastal plain. Every May the Bellapais Music Festival takes place inside the monastery.
