“As a place to visit is worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

It is a very nice church, in the middle of nowhere (try to avoid the restaurants near there) continue traveling to other areas for food further either to Troodos, kakopetria etc. Make sure before you drive of the timetable of the church (when it is open).

“More than a church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

A pretty little church with impressive frescoes. But this is just one of the mediaval churches one can visit on the mountains of the Troodos. Other beautiful even if simple churches include Panayia tou Araka, St John Lampadistis (in the pretty village of Kalopanayiotis). It would be greart pity if visitors only stay on the coast and miss on these beauties.

“Very beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

When we walked in we were very struck by the history and the beauty of this church. We felt shy to take pictures so we abstained. This was worth the trip.

“a byzantine trasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

You should visit this little jewel of byzantine art and see the well preserved icons. No books in Greek unfortunately, but a lot of options in english and russian.
