The Church of Holy Cross at Pedoulas village, Nicosia

The Church of Holy Cross at Pedoulas

The Church of Stavros (Holy Cross) at Pedoulas is located just outside the village and it was on our way to Kykkos Monastery that day.

Of course we did not miss the opportunity to visit the Church which is located on a mountain peak, visible from distance with a great view all around!

This small but beautiful Church is dedicated to the Holy Cross and the wall paintings inside justify just that. Most of the images reflect the life of Christ and his sacrifice on the Cross.

Outside a big Cross stands just beside the Church which was officially in operation in 1981.
