Simple church listed in the UNESCO World Heritage (Galata - Cyprus)

Simple church listed in the UNESCO World Heritage

[ Apr.2015 ] The next place we went on the tour called ‘Round Trip’ in Cyprus was Panagia Podithou Church in Galata village, which is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.

The hut in the photo is it.

It is very different from the churches we have visited so far.

It was built in 1502 and it used to be a monastery.

Our guide said that they made a frame building around the original church.

Inside was very simple and it was cold.

Taking photos was not allowed, so I bought the post cards.

I looked up the internet and found the title in the World Heritage list is “Painted Churches in the Troodos Region” and 10 churches are included.

There seems more decorative churches with full of frescoes and I wonder why this tour took us here and not others….
