The Byzantine Art in Cyprus -2

EXCURSIONS / Routes / Nicosia / Religious Routes / The Byzantine Art in Cyprus -2
In order to cover the entire island, the route was divided into two parts, the West route and the East route, to avoid a single long route and give time to people to visit all the monuments.

The East route starts from Lefkosia (Nicosia) and heads south with its first stop being at Pera Chorio for the Church of Agion Apostolon where there are frescoes of the 12th century. In Kellia, the church of Agios Antonios houses wonderful frescoes of the 11th and 13th centuries. Another stop is made in Larnaka for the church of Agios Lazaros built in 900 AD and, of course, for all the proposed monuments, which represent Byzantine art in various periods. Some of the monuments are common in both routes.

Monuments: Church of Agios Antonios in Kellia, Church of Agios Mamas and Church of Metamorfosis in Sotira, Church of Panagia and Church of Agia Marina in Paralimni, Monastery of Agia Napa in Agia Napa, Church of Agios Lazaros in Larnaka (Larnaca), Church of Aggeloktisti in Kiti, Church of Panagia in Kivisili, Monastery of Timios Stavros in Stavrovouni and Royal Chapel in Pyrga.

Total route length: 214 kilometres.
Start Point: Church of Agion Apostolon, Pera Chrorio
End Point: Churches of Agiou Georgiou and Agiou Demetrianou, Dali
