Archangelos Michail Monastery

The church is dedicated to Saints Barnabas and Hilarion. It was probably built in the 9th or 10th century and is an outstanding example of Cypriot Byzantine architecture. Next to the church lies the Turkish mosque of Peristerona, one of many visible evidences of the peaceful coexistence between Greek and Turkish Cypriots prior to the 1974 Turkish invasion.
