This beautiful church is under the protection of UNESCO and the name translates as "Built by Angels." The mosaic of the church is one of the best preserved early Christian wall mosaics in Cyprus and was likely created in the late 6th century.
  • Continuing our tour we will visit the unique church of Virgin Mary which is situated inside a cave and was used as a hermitage for monks during the 8th - 9th century. The historical cave of ''Panagia Chrysospiliotissa'' is located in a beautiful location overgrown with eucalyptus and rhododendrons.
  • We will then arrive at Apostolos Andreas, in Episkopeio, which is the largest Russian church on the island. The temple has five golden domes with the main dome weighing about 7 tonnes. The domes arrived straight from Saint Petersburg and were put together on site. The temple is one of the largest in Cyprus and is able to accommodate 400 people.
  • Our next stop is on the picturesque area of Machaira where we will visit the Virgin Mary monastery. Machairas monastery is one of the three Royal and Stavropegic of the island, and also keeps the miraculous icon of Panagia (the Virgin Mary) of Machairas, which is attributed to Apostle Luke the Evangelist.
