Trooditissa Monastery, (Greek: Τροοδίτισσα) is situated on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains on the island of Cyprus. It is an Orthodox monastery dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

It was founded in 990, but the current building dates back to 1731. It is built at an altitude of 1,300m (4,265 feet) and the closest village is Platres.

The Holy Monastery of Trooditissa is estimated to have been founded after the period of iconoclasm. The earlier buildings, which were of the middle Byzantine period (12th century) are not saved. The main church and the other surrounding buildings were built in the 18th-20th centuries.

The most important relic of the monastery is the thaumaturgist icon of Virgin Mary, originally from Asia Minor and is known for its wonders to childless married couples who wish to have a child. The church celebrates on 15 August, during the feast of the Assumption.

  • Lovely little place to stop off and have a look if you’re in the area but we literally spent 10 minutes there and left. It was very quiet, so it doesn’t look to be a main tourist attraction.

  • Picturesque location in the mountainside with beautiful views, freshly renovated buildings, clean and maintained. Everything seemed deserted, I did not see a single person outside. I was hiking in Troodos mountains, and went past the monastery, but did not go inside because of several large signs in English that tourists allowed. Had not seen such attitude in other monasteries I visited and did not feel welcome.
  • Very nice and quiet place. Also amazing view
