Architecture sights in Pitsylia

This Unesco-listed Byzantine church is famous for the frescoes, painted by Filippos Goul in 1494, that decorate its gable roof. Access to the church requires some forethought; you must obtain the key from the priest at Platanistasa village 5km away and, of course, return it.
The church is somewhat remote, hidden along a sealed side road off the Orounda-Platanistasa (E906) route, though it can also be approached by a signposted but unsealed road from the next valley to the west through which the Polystypos-Xyliatos (E907) road runs.
