"Troodos : 'Kykkos..." Cyprus Favorite Tip by dedeckerm.

Cyprus General: 160 reviews and 184 photos

Favorite thing: Cyprus is famous for its monasteries.
In the mountainous Troodos region, 20 km west of the village of Pedoulos, is the most famous and richest monastery in Cyprus, Kykkos Monastery. It possesses one of the three surviving icons ascribed to Saint Luke. Fairs are held here in August and September. And also in Troodos you?ll find nine beautifully painted Byzantine churches.

Fondest memory: The 'most' missing is the 'sun' !!

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
