Kykkos Monastery (Panagia tou Kykkou), Pedoulas

(750+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
High in the Troodos Mountains, see the lavish Kykkos Monastery (Panagia tou Kykkou), known for its priceless relics and icons of the Orthodox world. Founded in the 11th century, the complex burned down a number of times and has lost most of its books and treasures. Only one icon of the Virgin Mary--which has been connected to frequent miraculous occurrences--has survived, and it's kept hidden in the monastery and put out on very rare occasions during prayers. Take the time to visit the monastery's vivid interiors, lined with brightly colored murals, and tour the museum that holds collections of pre-Christian, early Christian, and Byzantine antiques, ornaments, manuscripts, and frescoes as well as 15,000 books. Make Kykkos Monastery (Panagia tou Kykkou) a part of your Pedoulas vacation plans using our Pedoulas itinerary builder.
