A must-do if staying in Kalopanayiotis. Easily accessible across the bridge from the hotel with parking outside. Visit the old bridge afterwards down by the river below the church.
The road down to the Monastery and the museum is a bit of a white-knuckle ride, but when you get there is well worth it. The monastery church is in fact three churches built side-by-side at different times, they were opened up to make one church at a later date. So the frescos in each “church” are in a different... 更多

One of the 10 UNESCO-listed painted churches in the Troodos mountains. A beautiful church building which contains three chapels in the one building. Well signposted. Close to two other listed churches - Archangelos Michail, Padhoulas and Panagia tou Moutoulla.
