Archangel Michael Church

EXCURSIONS / Religious Monuments / Troodos / Archangel Michael Church
The Church of Archangelos Michail in Pedoulas was built and decorated in 1474.

It is a very small building with a usual sloping mountain roof. The templon is of the same period, intact and an excellent example of its kind.

The church is completely decorated on two levels, with 11 compositions from the Festival Cycle above and depictions of the saints below. The Crucifixion and the Ascension are depicted in the pediments. It is an example of local post - Byzantine painting 15 years before Venetian rule. The key can be found at the adjacent house, or leave a message for the village priest at the coffee shop.
