Agia Ekaterini

Published 1st of July, 2018

If you take the road from Kritou Terra down to the B7, you will drive past this church, and cannot fail to be impressed by it. Well, don't just drive by it. Park, and take a look. You won't be disappointed...

The View From Above

We covered this church briefly in the Paphos Life Road Trip 01 blog. It is worth a visit, so I thought it should have its own blog.

Ample Parking

So rather than just drive on by, pull over and have a look.

Interesting Roof

The church has been repaired, and is now a mixture of old and new.

From The Side

Before we go inside, lets have a look in the garden first...

Mystery Chairs

Not sure why these are here. It isn't a queue for the loo though, as that is in a different building.

Agios Charalambos

Let's take a little break from flowers. I know that Cyprus looks lovely in the Spring, and that it abounds with colour and life. But it' time to take a break. With the Polemi Tulip Festival fast approaching, and the knowledge that another road trip from Max is just around the corner too, I think we need to look at something without petals.

St George's Church and Shrine Caves

Near the shops on the Paphos / Geroskipou border, is a little track that runs below a cliff through some farmland. A sign indicates that there is a church down there, so one day I thought I would investigate. Sure enough, there was a little church, but there was so much more besides...

Sinti Monastery

It's time for another guest blog, and this time Max has taken a break from his minerals to show us somewhere a bit more spiritual. Over to you Max... Sinti Monastery is a very important ancient monument and not far away from Paphos, in the beautiful Xeros River Valley. I thought I would take a round trip. In order that people can visit the place all year round (even after a good Winter's rain) in a normal car I took the longer route over the hills where the roads nowadays are all properly surfaced. On the way back you can either take the same road (Winter) or use the short cut along the Xeros river bed which is only 8 km until the next village Nata.

The Murals of Agios Nikolaos

We've featured a lot of churches in our blogs. This is not surprising, as they are lovely building ornately decorated, and great places for quiet reflection on a hot summer's day. The more modern churches often have fantastic murals which take your breath away. But this is not a new tradition. A visit to the remote church of Agios Nikolaos, near Galataria, will show you that fully immersive church murals have been around for centuries...

The Abandoned Village of Theletra - Part 1

Old Theletra was abandoned several decades ago. The threat of landslides drove the population up the hll to a new settlement.

From Miliou To Theletra

While we were exploring the sulphur springs of Miliou a few weeks ago, we couldn't help but notice a village in the distance. When we realised that it was the abandoned village of Theletra, we were surprised, as we hadn't appreciated how close the two places were. So we thought we would find a scenic route between the two locations...

The Church of the Prophet Elias

As you drive to Polis on the B7, past Miliou, you will see a sign pointing to a church. If your Greek is as basic as ours, you will need Google Translate to tell you that it is the Church of the Prophet Elias. This is good to know, because you won't be able to find it on the map. When you see how small the church is, you will understand why...
