An 11th Century Bazantine church in the Troodos with amazing paintings. Completely worth going out of your way to see, but be sure it is open or you know where to get the key from!

St Nicholas church with two roofs, built in 1025, Byzantine church with beautiful old frescoes from 11th, 12th, 13th and 17th century. It used to be a monastery but its a church now. Not far from Troodos centre, definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful church and very popular tourist spot. The murals really are worth visiting. Check opening times as we tried to go on the only day it is closed!
