Overview

The Salonica View team organizes a pilgrimage to the Trooditissa Monastery and a wine tasting in Platres

A few words about our trip:

We will start from Nicosia and head by bus to the Holy Monastery of Trooditissa. First, we will stop for coffee in Platres. At the end of our visit to the Monastery, we will go to Platres for Wine Tasting.

 

Monastery of Panagia Trooditissa:

is an overwhelming retreat located on the southern slopes of the Troodos mountain range among the huge pines and the greenery. It dates back to the 13th century and is located northwest of the village of Platres, "hidden" in a beautiful green landscape. The Monastery of Trooditissa is built higher than all the other Monasteries of the island, at an altitude of 1370 meters, on the high mountain peaks of Troodos. Panagia was called "Trooditissa" because she was discovered on a slope of Troodos. It was also called "Virgin Olympia" since it is adjacent to the highest mountain peak of the island, Mount Olympus. Inside the church is the icon of the Virgin, covered by silver leaves. This image came from Asia Minor and is considered the patron saint of childless couples.
