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.
Often isolated in the mountains, the churches of Troodos can also be found in the bend of a street in these picturesque villages.© Giuseppe Simone Bertolucci
