Starting from Lefkosia (Nicosia) and heading towards Kato Deftera, visitors have the opportunity to visit the hermitage of Panagia tis Chrysospiliotissas, and then moving towards the village of Pera Chorio, the church of Agion Apostolon.

Route: Lefkosia - Kato Deftera - Pera Chorio - Dali - Agios Sozomenos.

This route is the shortest - without this meaning that it is of any less significance. In Dali, the church of Agios Dimitrianos has magnificent frescoes of 1317 AD. In Agios Sozomenos, apart from a church built under Turkish rule, there is another of Franco-Byzantine style dedicated to Agios Mamas, which is, however, unfinished.

Monuments: Hermitage of Panagia Chrysospiliotissa, Kato Deftera - Church of Agion Apostolon, Pera Chorio - Church of Agios Georgios & Church of Agios Dimitrianos, Dali - Church of Agios Mamas & Hermitage Cave, Agios Sozomenos.

Total route length: 44 km.
