Pedoulas Archangel Michael UNESCO Church

UNESCO Ancient Church of Archangel Michael

Archangels Michael Church is a tiny yet beautiful church featuring many beautiful and intricate paintings in a mural/fresco style. It is one of the 10 painted churches to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage in the Trudoös region. All of them provide an overview of Byzantine and post-Byzantine painting in Cyprus.
The remarkably preserved religious art in the Archangel Michael Church in Pedoulas makes it one of the most interesting of them all.
Although it may take a little searching to find, it is worth the challenge! Look for a small building resembling a house with a long, hanging roof on one side!
