The church has a large car park and when we went it was very quiet. The frescos inside are incredible and so well preserved. There is little information about it on the small board outside, so take your guide book! It is in a peaceful location and I would definitely recommend.

The church is a UNESCO world heritage site and fully deserves that rating. Externally the architecture is interesting and internally the frescoes are amazing. It is a good idea to do some reading about the place before you visit as the information on the board outside is very limited.

Winter time when it is snowing offers a church in a truly beautiful location. The church is a UNESCO site given its age and its amazing murals. It is not overly promoted - which most likely is a good thing as can enjoy peaceful, untouched visit. If don't mind walking, the uphill mountain walk from Kakopetria to the church is... More

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。

This is a medieval church, with very unique architecture and style. A great place to worship god and also an important historical site. A must see place for those visiting holy sites in Cyprus!
