Panagia tou Moutoulla

Panagia tou Moutoulla is one of the painted churches of the Troodos Mountains. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.

About this building

The church contains the only set of murals dating from the 13th century in Cyrpus. As many other painted churches in the Troodos  region, it is a single-nave church with a pitched timber roof.

Experts think it could have been founded as a private chapel in 1280. Its foundation was possible thanks to the donation of Ioannis of Moutoullas and his wife. The couple is represented in one of murals, holding a model of the church.
