Panagia tou Sinti Monastery (in Greek: Παναγία του Σίντη ) is a remarkable cultural monument and is located in picturesque area in the Pentalia village, on the west bank of Xeros River.

The date that the monastery was built is not well known but the church belongs to the first half of the 16th century. It is an Orthodox monastery and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

The monastery was in ruins until 1994 when the restoration works started and completed 4 years later. At 1998, Panagia tou Sinti monastery was fully restored with its significant historic and archaeological value.

During the year of the completed restoration the diploma of Europa Nostra was awarded to the monastery. Now, Panayia tou Sinti is considered as one of the most important structures ever built during the Venetian period in Cyprus.

In the centre of the monastery there is a well and on the west wing there is the church. On the east and north wing of the monastery there are storeyed buildings and on the west wings buildings of stables and barns exist.
