  • The next visit has been away us from the restaurant Monte Christo in a short walk to a church, which actually rather looks like a barn from the outside as a church - just a typical "barn roof Church". Also "Ayios Nikolaos of tis Stegis (St. Nicholas of the roof)" belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage "painted churches in the Troodos region". Despite its completely inconspicuous from the outside appearance, the Church is absolutely worth a visit (if at the time of our visit unfortunately through an indoor set up scaffolding for visually impaired renovations). It is a particularly interesting Byzantine Church of Cyprus with the wall paintings / frescoes dating from several centuries and thus different music styles.

  • Being a former monastery, this church is a bit bigger than the other churches of Unesco and also the exterior is less minimalist. The Church is currently undergoing restoration, whereby the splendid frescoes are not quite visible. Advice to a cue.
