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.

Co prawda góry Troodos na Cyprze dostępne są chyba głównie samochodem, ale uważam, ze warto tam pojechać a ten klasztor jest jednym z miejsc obowiązkowych w czasie wizyty.

Does giant impression, it is really beautiful, charming hotel and 100% worth visiting. Quietly, in front of the entrance you can rent a robe, if Our dress is not appropriate. If you are in Cyprus and you want a bit of exploring, this place clearly!
Beautiful holly place !Look at the pictures and judge for yourself, when going to a monastery you are not a tourist, you are the son of God that somehow called you to go there or is calling now, you that you're reading this or thinking already going there. It is worth all the way down there. The longer the road to reach our Lord the shorter he will heard your pray.
I was expecting an ancient warren of fascinating alcoves full of treasures, and found a modern building with some labor intensive but underwhelming mosaics. My fault for not researching, and I enjoyed the drive there, but not recommended by me.
