Frescoes – Icons
In the churches of the Solea valley, authentic examples of Byzantine monumental art are found dating from the 11th to the 19th century. Frescoes of high aesthetic value include elements that demonstrate the relationship between Eastern and Western Christian art. The icons, on the other hand, are invaluable, ancient and unique.
The inclusion of these churches in the Unesco World Heritage Site List, reflects the recognition of the high level and quality of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine painting in Cyprus.
