The Cathedral is small but beautiful. No photos allowed which is fine we understand this as many churches have the same rules. However in all the churches we have ever been in they allow you to buy candles and light them for loved ones lost....More

Very small inside. But outside it looks very unique, beautiful, and historical. Maybe some part was not open to the public.

You should see this Orthodox church for praying and meditation. Lovely old paintings and icons. Go early, before it's get crowded. Closed in the evening.

but only from the 18th century. More interesting ones up in the Troodos mountains. One gets the impression that the officials can be full of themselves. Not a pleasant church atmosphere.

A true example of how the outside deceives the eye. The inside of this church is MAGNIFICENT! Icons, gold leaf everywhere, statues. It is truly breath taking. Go see it & its free. No photos of the inside allowed.

This is an old historic church inside the archbishopric's yard. Altough a small church, it is full of treasures and history. The area is nice, you can visit the museum next door too.

This is sort of the cathedral, really rather small. Like many Greek churches it is heavily decorated with wall paintings. The altar area has the usual screen and icons. Pictures are not allowed and tour groups can provide irritating distraction due to modest space. What...More
