Discover The churches in the Troodos mountains Cyprus

Amongst all the religious buildings in the Troodos Mountains, visit the churches of Asiniou (12th century), Panayia Tou Arakou (13th century) and Ayios Nikolaos as a priority. Asiniou has the most complete cycle of Byzantine murals visible in Cyprus. In Arakou, the frescoes are astonishingly well preserved.
