Fodor's Review

At the Kykkos Monastery, founded in 1100, the prized icon of the Virgin is reputed to have been painted by St. Luke; you can view the icon enclosed in a shrine, and the museum also includes other icons, woodcarvings, and embroidery. The monastery has been repeatedly destroyed by fire, and the current structure dates from 1831.
