Although pictures were not allowed to be taken inside the Church,it is a must to be seen by people as it is one of the most beautiful Churches l have ever seen, you are able to take pictures of parts outside of the Church, the pictures on walls and where the Monks lived.

From lasa it was an easy trip into the hills where we discovered the Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery. There was a Christening going on when we visited, which was interesting to see and when it finished the Monastery was beautifuly quiet and relaxing to stroll around.

Peaceful monastery with well preserved church. Worth calling in at on the way past as it's right in the roadside. Very good,winery in the village close by. (Vouni Panayia Winery). Also birthplace of Archbishop Makarios.

Stopped here on the way touring the area in a jeep. It is very old & feels very holy. It has a nice peaceful atmosphere. We liked the beautiful paintings & icons. There is a small shop selling religious items. Outside is a small but friendly cafe , sheltered from the sun with mountain views.
Very rich Monastery, very much to see, worth going there! If you like mosaic's than this is the place :-) more than 300 large mosaic to see! Also you can see the two guards. One stands outside, the other inside (but you can see him) and they change spot every hour, you can take pictures.
