Worth visiting if you have a car and are in Kakopretria. Lovely frescos inside, bright colours. 15th century 'extra' roof is quite unusual.

We got there just before it closed, and the woman was nice and stayed for a few more minutes as we looked around. Beautiful paintings inside. Recommend.

It is one of the Byzantine treasures that is preserved in very food condition! The colors are beautiful and the history very interesting!

Very interesting church, just outside Kakopetria, which is nearly always open during the day, with a warden in charge. Not like some, where the key-holder is miles away! Good frescoes, and postcards of same for sale.

I must admit I had reservations about going to visit here, but it was well worth the effort... and completely free!! The inside is stunning, and some parts are 12th century. We would have happily paid!

we hiked to the church and it was a nice way and worth it. The paintings are extraordinary. And if needed two restaurants are around for a snack or a drink.
