Church of Timios Stavros, Pelendri

The Church of Timios Stavros (Church of the Holy Cross)
The village of Pelendri was once the property of Jean de Lusignan, son of the Lusignan King of Cyprus, Hugh IV. There are two interesting churches in the village. One is the 14th century church of Timios Stavros with superb wall paintings of the Paleologian and other periods. It is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site. The other is the Church of Panayia Katholiki in the middle of the village, which dates to the early 16th century. It has paintings of the Italo-Byzantine style.
