Staggering!

An 11th Century Bazantine church in the Troodos with amazing paintings. Completely worth going out of your way to see, but be sure it is open or you know where to get the key from!

St Nicholas church with two roofs, built in 1025, Byzantine church with beautiful old frescoes from 11th, 12th, 13th and 17th century. It used to be a monastery but its a church now. Not far from Troodos centre, definitely worth a visit.

This is the only surviving 11th century Byzantine Church in Cyprus. It's located near the Kakopetria village on the Troodos mountain range. It's covered in murals, some dating back to the 11 century.

Beautiful church and very popular tourist spot. The murals really are worth visiting. Check opening times as we tried to go on the only day it is closed!

This is a peaceful, little church hidden in the Troodos mountains. I loved this place for its remoteness, peacefulness, and spiritual feeling. I highly recommend making a visit. It was my favorite of the churches I saw. Agios Nikolaos is one of the oldest of the UNESCO-designated Troodos painted churches and is unique in that it has two roofs to... More

Lovely old church with unusual double roof built to protect the wonderful artwork which adorns all the walls inside the church . The artwork dates from the 11 century to the 17 century.

If you find yourself in the Kakopetria area, then take the short drive to this little church just to see the ancient painted Byzantine interior. There is a large car park close by and entry is free.

Brilliant, a 'must' to visit. A UNESCO building and an amazing monument. There is a security man to guide you to the monastery. Well worth a visit

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.
