near Fásli, Eparchía Páfou (Cyprus)

Beautiful well maintained little old chapel with awesome panoramic view.
Road is okay for any 4x4 , maintained also pretty well. To use saloon car may other direction is better, some part is harsh from Akamas direction.

Sixteen kilometers from the village Inneia situated in the province of Paphos, and overlooking the sea coast of the isolated Akamas peninsula, the Byzantine church (28 feet by 12 feet) of the Virgin Mary of the Blind (Panagia Tou Vlou or Flou), is found.The church took its name from the deserted Monastery of Panagia Tou Tyflou of which the present church was built over the older and much bigger church of the Monastery.According to some historians, this Monastery was independent, but the most accepted view is that it was a dependency of the Monastery of Saint George Nikoxilitis in the village of Drouseia.

According to tradition, Saracen pirates pillaged the Monastery and the Virgin Mary run after them.When they raised their sails, she turned their boats into stones.There they remained to this day, in order to remind people of the great sin of sacrilege.These boat-shaped stones are known as "karavopetres"
