High in the Troodos Mountains, see the lavish Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos, 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. Find out how to plan Pedoulas trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Panagia (Monastery) of Kykkos Reviews
Decided to drive into the mountains and explore the more isolated roads. Saw signs for this monastery and went to it. Extremely peaceful place and very good for self reflection. I'm not a religious... more »
This monastery is well worth finding up in the Troodos mountains with a view above it of Archbishop Mikarios' Tomb (closed when we were there). Such a pretty place in a magnificent setting. more »
Gorgeous place. Nice and huge mosaics and wall paints. Please note, ladies has to cover their shoulder. If you don't have anything with you it's no problem, both entrances has hangers with light (some kind of purple) coats what you can take and use while you are at the monastery.
Perfectly renovated quite bombastic monastery in the mountains. Welcoming, well preserved
