One of the most beautiful corners in the largest village on the mountains of Cyprus, Kyperounda, Timios Stavros chapel is, without a doubt something you should put on your list to visit, if you are fascinated by the local Medieval monuments. This place, though, perfectly combining natural beauties, history and tradition, is a destination with unique beauty, that is worth exploring to every corner. 

It is a single, small church that decorates this area ever since the Franks era. It is the oldest church in Kyperounda and it is located withing a few steps from the central square, thus it cannot but be a part of your tour in the village. Its typical, wooden roof, similar to those of most churches on the mountains, and the stone built walls, follow the traditional architectural norm, creating a most picturesque image in the middle of the evergreen, botanical garden.

In contrast to the bright colors of the nature outside, in the yard of the church, the dim light in the interior of the stone built temple creates some kind of a mystique for the visitors. One can discover there ancient treasures, like the amazing murals on the eastern and western side of the building, dated since 1521. The church operates as an exhibition area for clerical heirlooms of the community, creating a small, church museum in its space, including from unique pictures of saints, to ceremonial instruments.
