At “Stavros tou Agiasmati” and “Panagia tou Araka” at Lagoudera village (off the Kakopetria-Toodos-Lemessos road) and at “Timiou Stavou” at Pelendri village (3 km below Kato Amiantos), both churches know for their beautiful wall paintings. Usually the keys for the churches can be acquired from the local priest.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The whole village has been declared an ancient monument in order to preserve the remarkable woodwork and folk architecture of the 18th century houses.

 

You can see the House of Katsinioros and Achillea Dimitri which date back to the 16th century and have became rural museums. They were granted the EUROPA NOSTRA award in 1987.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
