Troodos Art Heritage & Culture


Museums and Galleries

Troodos has unique and culturally significant Ecclesiastical, Folk Art, and Wine (old wine Press) Museums which is an ongoing record of bygone eras.

Tucked away in the Troodos pine forests, are Cyprus' famous painted churches with their vibrant frescoes on the walls and ceilings, and fabulous examples of Byzantine art. Ten of these are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Kykkos Monastery, the largest and perhaps most well-known monastery on the island, has a breath-taking Byzantine museum and the main church houses a golden icon of the Virgin Mary, which, as tradition has it, was painted by the Apostle Saint Luke.

Do not miss the Troodos Geopark Visitor Centre in Amiantos and the Troodos National Forest Park Visitor Centre in Troodos Square.
