A tiny village in the mountains - but a beautiful church. You'll be welcomed to see the icons and gaze at the decorations. And there's a piece of the Holy Cross in the Crypt - although not on show.

We visited the old village of Lefkara and decided to visit this very impressive church. It is well worth a visit while walking around the narrow old streets of the village.
