Multi Cultural Christian Cyprus Tolerant to other Religions and Doctrines - Route B Religious Route
This route is very pleasant and covers half of the island.
Starting from Lefkosia (Nicosia), you reach Pyrga to visit the royal Latin chapel with Byzantine frescoes and you move on to Stavrovouni to visit the monastery of Timios Stavros where a piece of the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified is kept. Then, you pass Lemesos (Limassol) and Kourion to reach Timi where you will visit a small church which was converted into a mosque under Turkish rule. In Ktima, you once again come across a mosque, which used to be an Orthodox church dedicated to Agia Sofia. During the entire route, you will come across many monuments, which relate to the multi-cultural side of Cyprus.
