“Unbelievable”

Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis Church
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 February 2017

Unbelievable in a way this is actually a church, but that's the beauty of several of these churches under a UNESCO inscription. It's this that got us to visit and I'm very glad we did. The architecture itself is interesting and unusual and the frescoes inside are vivid and beautiful. Can't believe it's been here since 11th century (with various improvements of course). The entrance to the church is free and there's a large enough car park next to the gate and the guardhouse - the car would be your most convenient way of getting there. The church is open and available in normal visiting hours, someone is always there (as opposed to some other paited churches.)

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.

We had a quick visit to this Lovely little church close to Kakopetria, Troodos, Cyprus. No photos allowed inside but lots of postcards and books available. Beautiful paintings on walls and ceilings. Friendly Nun kept us company.

We had seen signs everywhere to this and thought why not and what a gorgeous little find it was! Such history to this place, and abandoned. Not difficult to find but very interesting to see and even though it could 5-10 minutes seeing it as it is very small but worth it reading about the place!
