Panagia tis Podithou
The church of Panagia Podithou is situated in a central area of the Troodos mountain range, in the upper Solea valley in the village of Galata.
It is built in a narrow and fertile valley of the river Klarios/Karkotis, a few hundred meters to the north of the village of Galata.
In 1985 it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List which includes nine other painted Byzantine churches of the Troodos range.
Panagia Podithou used to be the katholicon (monastery church) of a monastery bearing the same name.
