  • In the heart of Cyprus there are several monasteries and Byzantine churches that are worth the visit. Some of them (10 in particular) are part of the Unesco World Heritage List. Trooditissa monastery is not among them but it is well worth a visit. An oasis of peace and tranquility. I suggest you visit it first, because the other churches are undoubtedly more interesting. One note: don't be put off by the sign at the entrance says "the monastery doesn't allow visiting tourists". You can, however, enter.
