Panayia Asinou

Beautiful old church. Most meaningful to read up on the church history and the importance of Panayia Asiniu icons before visiting.

The food was good with an average service. I went with a group so may be this is the reason of the average.

This church is filled with wonderful Byzantine paintings, which for the most part, are in good condition. The person overseeing the church the day we were there was knowledgable about the paintings. I was especially interested in the representations of women saints and empresses in this church, which are more than in most of the World Heritage Churches in Cyprus.

I visited 5 painted churches and this was one of the most beautifully painted. The church is small but the interior is covered by frescoes. I had a good map and the church was well marked, it was a nice drive, and easy to find (it's close to the main road).

One of the 10 UNESCO-listed painted churches in the Troodos mountains. Visited on a Monday morning - the church was open with a gentleman present. Well signposted - lovely location - beautiful paintings.

A small particularly picturesque chapel between nature . Builded with stone resembles fairy . Inside frescoes depict saints . A beautiful and peaceful part

Apart from the paintings inside it's fairly unique with one flying buttress wall normally you have a fair number to support the wall. There will be a story there. The church is at an end / start of a forest walk so you can tie that one in with a hike, it's in the Rother walking guide. Not too sure... More

The off-the beaten-road is located in a beautiful natural setting, in a forested area, near a river. The interior has beautiful, well preserved frescoes.

We visited this small church a lot of times. You will love the route in the forest. The architecture of the church and the wall paintings. Tip. their are celebrations their at the first Tuesday after the Easter every year.

Even the ride to this place is so picturesque! Beautiful architecture, an awesome setting, a most amazing interior - the colors are so vivid it feels they were painted yesterday!
