Travel just 2km southwest of the village of Kakopetria and discover a church built on the west bank of the river Klarios/Karkotis. The church of Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis was the only building which survived from an 11th century Byzantine monastery.

The church stands apart for its roof with a steep pitch where the name ‘Tis Stegis’ originates. Step inside and admire the frescoes embellishing the walls transforming the church into a museum of Byzantine art. Notable paintings are the composition of the Forty Martys and the figure of Agios Nikolaos.
