Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis

Agios Nikolaos tis Stegis Review

Agois Nikolaos tis Stegis, or St. Nicholas of the Roof—so named for its steep, pitched roof, built for protection against the snow—is an 11th-century Byzantine church and UNESCO World Heritage site containing stunning frescoes. The frescoes were painted between the 11th and 17th centuries and depict such iconic scenes as the Crucifixion and the Nativity. You'll need a car to reach the church, which is located in the Troodos Mountain region.
