The Ayia Napa Aqueduct is situated in the town of Ayia Napa in the Famagusta district. It is amongst the monuments which have been saved within the municipality borders. The Ayia Napa Aqueduct satisfied the needs of the Ayia Napa Monastery as well as the whole area. The archaeological remains that were found from the west of the Monastery until the Ayia Thekla Church (Filina location) show the presence of an older aqueduct that existed during the Roman period.

The aqueduct today is a restoration and conversion of the original aqueduct of the Roman Period, which occurred during the Frankish period when the Monastery of Ayia Napa was built. The water source is located between Ayia Napa and Protaras. The visible course of the aqueduct until 1974 was marked by a barrel constriction in the location Mana tou Nerou, which the residents knew with the name “The house of the Greeks”. From there the constructors shaped the natural rock in such a way so that the aqueduct would remain in a 1, 6 % slope, making the flow of the water easier towards the monastery. Constructions for cleaning the water were made in two places in the course of the aqueduct, while in a third place, a construction was made in order to assist with watering the animals as well as diverting the water towards the fields.
