UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Cyprus

The Archangel Michael is the most prominent painting in the Archangel church in Pedhoulas, and is a Unesco World Heritage site in the Troodos region of Cyprus

There are three Unesco World Heritage sites on the island nation of Cyprus, and we have visited them all.

Well, not all of them exactly, because the painted churches of the Troodos region are a little hard to track down and seeing them all would take a few days, and probably a better road map to remote villages than we had.

Nevertheless, Cyprus is a fascinating place, and well worth a visit. The very epicenter of ancient Greek culture. For a classics geek like me, it's hard to beat.

The outstanding mosaics of Paphos are particularly interesting and are a complement to the temple ruins of Aphrodite in Kouklia, some of the oldest ruins of the ancient Greek world.

Here is a list of the Unesco World Heritage sites in Cyprus:

  1. One of Mr. (Dr.) Excitement’s mentees is Cypriot and invited us to visit there when she and her Cypriot husband were also there, so we had local guides. At the time, we described it as Greece lite. There are the benefits of enjoying Greek culture and history in a country that still sort of runs on British administration (except for that money laundering thing), where lots of people speak good English.

  2. Wow. I need to get Cyprus on my list. I travel so much in the UK and France, I end up neglecting the rest of Europe. Thanks for the wonderful photos – I’m convinced!
