The church of Timios Stavros is situated in a central area of the Troodos mountain range, at the south end of the village of Pelendri, which is attested in the sources since the late 12th century.
In 1985 it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List which included nine other painted Byzantine churches of the Troodos range.
The present form of the church is the result of several additions and alterations, carried out throughout various periods.
Originally, it was a single-aisled domed structure, built around the middle of the 12th century.
The original church was destroyed under unknown circumstances.
Only the apse survived, which was incorporated in a new church of the same type, built at the end of the 13th or the beginning of the 14th century.
