The monastery of Trooditissa was founded in the 12th century. A religious holiday is celebrated on August 15. Located in the middle of the pines at an altitude of 1,380 m, it was destroyed and rebuilt twice in the 18th and 19th centuries. Like the Kykkos monastery, it owes its prestige to an icon of the Virgin attributed to Saint Luke, but also to the presence of a "fertility belt" that belonged to the Virgin. Only the church, rebuilt after a fire in 1842, is accessible to visitors.
