The Church of Panagias Karmiotissas is located north of the new Limassol Hospital, and makes up part of the old monastery inhabited by Carmelite monks. The size and unique architecture of the temple fills visitors with awe.

The monastery must have been established towards the end of the 13th century A.D. or the start of the 14th century A.D.The temple is built in the single-aisle basilica style, with a pointed, arched roof and elements of Gothic architecture.

At a distance of 100 meters there is a cave, where holy water springs that is considered therapeutic, while the picture of the Virgin of Eleousa is thought to be miraculous. It is believed that a small stream once led to the church, which brought the holy water there.
