One of the top attractions in the Larnaca district is the church of Angeloktisti in the village of Kiti, about 12 kilometres from the city of Larnaca.
This is a domed, cross-in-square Greek Orthodox church of the 11th century constructed over the ruins of a 5th century early Christian basilica and according to a local legend, it was built by angels (hence the name Angeloktisti). The church has undergone a number of alterations and two chapels were added to the main structure (the one to the north is dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damianos and the other to the south in Gothic style is Latin).
The church contains a vary rare 15th century icon of Archangel Michael and a unique mosaic depicting Virgin Mary standing up and holding young Jesus in her left arm and Archangels Michael and Gabriel standing to her right and left.
After your visit to the church, enjoy a cup of coffee at the kiosk in the church yard.
