    the small monastery is located in a Valley and is a little gem! The buildings of the plant are small and compact, enclose a courtyard. The Church is completely painted with ancient frescoes inside, show the stories from the old and the New Testament. In an adjoining building remains of a mill and bakery. Also: nearby, in a few minutes a sulphur spring is on along the River to reach (with helpful information board).

    First Church, that we visited was the Church of St. John Lampadista. We followed the Navigator, but even it managed collapsed several times not to go there, because it is often very narrow road was simply not visible from cars, as sharply went down. When we drove through the Village Road stopped so narrow that the machine between the mirrors and walls remained no more than 10 cm. At the end of the day we arrived. The territory is small, the Church, like many churches in the region, known as "the Church under the roof", was covered with wooden gable roof. Inside, we saw the stunning beauty of the frescoes, bright colors and detailed drawing faces. In the church there is the tomb of John Lampadista and silver Ark with his relics. In this church we joined a small group of Russian tourists who are accompanied by Guide Leonidas. He comes from the Greeks settled in Russia, fleeing from the Turks, and then from Greece came to Cyprus. His story was very interesting and emotional. He talked about Biblical subjects with sweeping enthusiasm and inspirations, like to listen to him and listen. In the 12 century in family of priest from the village of Lamp was the son of John. When he was twenty years old, his parents decided to marry, but John wanted to become a monk, that did not like the bride's family and they decided to poison. John survived, but became blind. (Can poison became methyl alcohol?:) He became a monk at the monastery of Iraklidija and died at the age of 22 years. After his death, near the grave of miraculous healings have occurred. John was erected in a rank of the Saints, and then the same monastery was renamed in his honour-St. John Lampadista. To simplify the life of the inhabitants of the village in 2006, was built the escalator to live the villagers did not rise on the winding streets and climbed right on track.
