The church of Panagia Forbiotiissa, better known as Panagia of Asinou, is situated in the north foothills of the Troodos mountain range and is builit on the east bank of a stream.
It used to be the monastery church of the Monastery of Forbion, as its name implies. It was founded in 1099 and it functioned until the end of the 18th century.
The interior is entirely covered with wall-paintings, of which the earliest is dated to 1105.
These frescoes reflect the art of Constantinople, which is thought to be the artist's birthplace and they are one of the most important groups of Byzantine art of this period.
Very beautiful old and little church
All the best from Poland
