It is a very traditional monastery situated in the center of the village and surrendered by many nice architectural homes. The icon selection is huge and very nice.

This Monastery is in the middle of town so you can't miss it. There are many very nice Ikons. We visit the Monastery after lunch and it was very quiet and empty. Beautiful. Always consider to dress respectful when entering a Monastery.

Omodos is an old village with a church that holds lots of saints relics. You can feel peave inside and few minutes to say a quick prayer cause you cant spend lot of time in the church you have to visit all the village

This is the best part of the village. Historic and a beautiful place. Busy yet peaceful. You can light a candle for loved ones. Lovely building and artefacts inside. Dress respectfully when visiting and just enjoy a piece of Greek history.
