Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis, is a very old church, belonging now to UNESCO heritage, that if you are nearby Kakopetria should be visited. We went there using a car, so can not actually say, if it is easily approachable on foot. Worth seeing!

This is one of the easiest UNESCO painted Troodos churches to visit. Many of the others are closed or only open on appointment etc, a real hassle. this one closes at 16:00 (different from the 18:00 quoted in the Lonely Planet). Once inside - no photos - the frescos are wonderful, really bright vivid and in an excellent state of... More
