The Troodos massif that stretches accross the centre of Cyprus and reaches up to 1.952 metres at Mount Olympos, is truly spectacular, a rugged but easily accessible region brimming with nature trails, 12th to 15th century frescoed churches, winemaking villages and pine forests. Monasteries dating from the Byzantine period but the best known is that of Kykkos, built in the 12th century and magnificently restored. It has a beautiful museum of religious icons. The main resorts of the Troodos, are Platres and Kakopetria, cosmopolitan villages with attractive bakeries, shops and refreshing alpine atmosphere.
