Certificate of Excellence

We went there by walking from the hotel. It was holy place for the visitors who came from around Cyprus believe that it can do miracles.The guides insides monastery were explaining us about the history and old icons which were really useful to know more.

this is by far one of the most beautiful monasteries I have visited in Greece. In fact I never give donations to churches but I was thinking of giving 5 euro on my way out (5 euro is much for me considering I still didn't get paid). But the priest there saw me taking pictures and scolded me so I had to leave :(. That aside, it has very beautiful frescos inside, and is also very close to the venetian bridge. NOt as big and grand as other medieval bridges but very nice to see.

The picturesque village of Kalopanagiotis is known for its healthy sulphur springs and for its church of Agios loannis Lambadistis.

The Church of Agios Ioannis Lambadistis and Byzantine Museum

Originally a monastery, today’s church of Agios Ioannis Lambadistis is a complex of three churches: Agios Irakleidios, Agios Ioannis Lambadistis and a Latin chapel – all under a single pitched roof. The church is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The church of Agios Irakleidios was built in the 11th century while its frescoes date to the 13th and 16th century. The iconostasis is particularly interesting, covered with gargoyles, including a heraldic Lusignan lion and Byzantine eagle.

The church of Agios Ioannis Lambadistis was built in 1731. The saint’s tomb, which dates to the 12th century, can be found under the narrow north-eastern arch and the saint’s skull lies in a niche. The icon of Lambadistis dates to 1543. The Latin Chapel contains the most complete series of Italo-Byzantine paintings in Cyprus.
