A must see! Even if you're church-out, it's worth going off the beaten track for. It's totally unique and very, very old.

This church s truly located in the center of the mountain. Very far from other cities. But it is worth to visit. We drove about three hours from Paphos. But we were satisfied. 本当に山の中にあり、行くのは大変ですが、わざわざ行く価値がありました。内部のフレスコ画は天井も壁も埋め尽くされていて本当に見事です。
