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...More

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...More

Worth visiting if you have a car and are in Kakopretria. Lovely frescos inside, bright colours. 15th century 'extra' roof is quite unusual.

It is one of the Byzantine treasures that is preserved in very food condition! The colors are beautiful and the history very interesting!

Very interesting church, just outside Kakopetria, which is nearly always open during the day, with a warden in charge. Not like some, where the key-holder is miles away! Good frescoes, and postcards of same for sale.

We had a quick visit to this Lovely little church close to Kakopetria, Troodos, Cyprus. No photos allowed inside but lots of postcards and books available. Beautiful paintings on walls and ceilings. Friendly Nun kept us company.
