Wifey and I visited here many years Ago and this time brought mumsy & dragon-in-law. As we’d been telling them the stunning beauty and simplicity of this Church with its amazing frescos cannot be done justice by words alone. They have to be seen to...More

This is an incredible church dated back to about the 12th century. It is located not far from Nicosia. The byzantine wall drawings are invaluable and they are an amazing inheritance of great historical value. I definitely recommend visiting this church.

The paintings were everywhere with one special icon part-covered with a plastic shield near the way out. The shield was explained when we saw visitor after visitor kiss the image as a gesture of their faith and devotion. Another World Heritage site. Glad Cyprus is...More

An almost 1000 year old church, built in the middle of a forest. Beuautiful murals inside. Serene location, with some restaurants close by and a camping ground a bit further.

Of all the painted churches and monasteries, this was our favorite. It's just a simple squat building, but inside the entire interior is decked in vibrant frescoes. The setting is beautiful and the whole experience tranquil.
