This small church is set in the Troodos Mountain area. There is a small parking area and a walkway down to the church. The entrance is around the back side of the building.

A church that was built back on the 11th century. What else i need to say. Amazing! Few miles after Kakopetria in the middle of the mountains an excellent sample of religious History. Must visit if you are in the area.

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。

We really enjoyed seeing this old Byzantine Church. The Frescoes are beautiful and well preserved. Quite amazing to see a church that has remained intact for over 1000 so many years. When you turn off the road there is a parking lot on your left in a gated area. You walk to the church through the parking lot. The area... More
