About this building

Built in the 15th century, the church was originally part of a monastic complex near the mountain village of Platanistasa. As many other painted churches in the Troodos region, it is a single-nave church with a pitched timber roof.

As in some other churches, the donors of the church, the priest Petros Peratis and his wife Pepani, are represented holding a model of the church.
