“Beautifully preserved, historic church”

Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis Church
Reviewed 26 November 2017

This is a beautiful little church, on the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is in an isolated position and visitors must contact the priest to obtain access, via the local coffee shop; do buy a drink there, from the very friendly and helpful owner.

The Church is a mass of murals dating back to the middle ages, with more 17th century murals on the exterior. The floor itself has some unusual tiles, though unfortunately as the priest spoke no English and we spoke no Greek, we were unable to understand why they were there.

WEll worth visiting.

Small but interesting church. Picture of Virgin Mary part covered in plastic to receive kisses of faithful visitors. Intersting tree hung bell.

This is one of the best churches I've even been in Cyprus. It's history goes back to the 11st Century. It's a real blessing place where you should visit and pray at. I really enjoyed my stay at this church , went there many times and I would definitely go there again. It's located inside a monastery which has WONDERFUL views , you can drink water from the mountain . Bottom line , a place where you should visit

A tiny little church with such an unusual history with a double roof structure, it pays to read up a little on the history of the building as there is minimal information at the site. A shame you aren't allowed to take pictures inside, but I can understand why, the painted icons / fresco's are amazing and to think that some of them date back to the 11th century, astonishing.

It's a little difficult to find the route of it, because from the outside we see only soccer field and sport facilities. Also there is only us there.
30 minute is enough for photographing if you want to have a peep, I would say that it's nothing too special for an atheist.
