The thousand year old monastery of Kykkou on top of Mt Troodos; founder: emperor Alexius Comnenus. It is not the Vatican of the Church of Cyprus, but it certainly feels like it.
The monastery frescoes are brand new, 1980s. The iconostasis is of course far older, and I couldn’t pin its styles down. The monks are relaxed, and not a few of them were chatting with cops in the canteen. And the reliquary… well, yeah, there were just too many relics of saints to keep track of.
