Absolutely love this place, we visit every time we come to protaras (which is regular) and it’s stunning, it’s so peaceful up there and you can see for miles and miles! Would recommended everyone to take the hike up the steps, it’s well worth it!

Lots of stairs to get up there but well worth it, fantastic views of the area the big surprise is how old the church is . The church was built in 1984
