20 km west from Nicosia, you’ll find this apparently utterly underwhelming looking church. Do not judge this book by its cover! Step inside, and you’ll be stunned by some of the most beautiful Byzantine-era paintings ever. The walls are completely frescoed. It is thought that the work here was done in 1105/6 by an artist from Constantinople. The murals on the narthex though were done in the 12th century, and shows strong Frankish influence. Yet more frescoes were added in the 17th century.

Once upon a time, this church was the centre of local monastic activity, though today, no trace remains of those traditions.
