but only from the 18th century. More interesting ones up in the Troodos mountains. One gets the impression that the officials can be full of themselves. Not a pleasant church atmosphere.

Just absolutely stunning art work, beautiful, historic and INTACT iconography. Could have stayed for hours just looking. Downside: Very busy place so we were given an allocated time before the next group which was not long enough. No photos allowed, which is quite understandable, but...More

A true example of how the outside deceives the eye. The inside of this church is MAGNIFICENT! Icons, gold leaf everywhere, statues. It is truly breath taking. Go see it & its free. No photos of the inside allowed.

This is an old historic church inside the archbishopric's yard. Altough a small church, it is full of treasures and history. The area is nice, you can visit the museum next door too.

It gets crowded and it is small for a cathedral but it's still worth a visit. It would be hard to avoid on a tour of Nicosia.

Entering the small gate, you walk into a complex of several buildings, St. John's cathedral being to the left. Straight on, there is a sort of exhibition centre, which at the time had a school exhibition on in the basement about Cyprus. The cathedral, to...More
