Up on a hill which overlooks the village of Agridia, in the heart of Pitsillia, will come across the mountain of Prophet Elias.

The chapel was constructed in 1996 with the help of donations from the village residents. It is a small church, built in the Byzantine cross-shaped style. In addition to being surrounded by a patio with a viewpoint and a telescope, 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 a place of worship, as according to locals, the Easter Monday invocation took place there for as long as anyone can remember. Its holy tradition, 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 tranquillity to all the faithful who visit.

Just below the chapel, visitors will find the Agridia picnic site.
