  • Profitis Elias Church

    Protaras Things to Do

    Although modern this church was built in the Byzantine style to replace a small room that was being used as a church. It is well worth the walk to the church and the climb to the top (about 100 steep stone steps) as from the top there is a breathtaking view of Protaras and the surrounding countryside. In the evenings the church is lit up.
