Chapel of Prophet Elias (Agridia)

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer.

West of the village of Agridia, in the heart of Pitsillia, one of the most beautiful mountainous areas of Limassol, one will come across the mountain of Prophet Elias. There, perched atop its very peak, is the little chapel dedicated to the Prophet, which is surrounded by craggy rocks, lush green forests, and breathtaking views below.

The chapel is fairly new, having been constructed towards the end of the 20th century with the help of donations from the village residents. It was completed in 1996, and inaugurated 2 years later, in 1998. It is a small church, built in the Byzantine cross-shaped style. Frescoes decorate the chapel’s interior walls, while its exterior whitewashed walls are also adorned by striking mosaic murals.

The grounds upon which the chapel is built have always been considered to be a place of worship, as according to locals, the Easter Monday invocation took place there for as long as anyone can remember. Its holy history, combined with the serenity of its surroundings, among the endless rolling hills featuring green as far as the eye can see, create a stunning setting that brings a sense of peace and tranquility to all the faithful who visit.

Just below the chapel, visitors will find the Agridia picnic site, which features well-maintained facilities and spectacular views of the surrounding area.
