Panagia tou Sinti or Panayia tou Sinti (in Greek: Παναγία του Σίντη ) is a remarkable cultural monument and is located in Pentalia, 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.
