Historical facts

The era of iconoclasm is the time when small Cyprus became home to many saints. Icon-worshipers were expelled from all over the world and tried to destroy their activities. One of these wanderers was Troodos. He managed to take from Constantinople a work with the image of the Mother of God. And in 762 he found peace on the island.

He settled in a cave that is now named after his name. For many years he lived within the cave and died as a hermit. But the lamp lit at night remained burning after his death. In memory of the deceased monk, this fire was kept by hunters, shepherds and inhabitants of the local lands.
