Church of Profitis Elias - Protaras

Access to the chapel is a bit difficult as anyone who wishes to visit it has to climb 156 stairs!

Nearby you can see a beautiful park where guests can relax.
Hundreds of visitors, in the summer months, come to worship the grace of Prophet Elia but also to enjoy the splendid panoramic view spreading in front of their eyes.
In the evenings, the hill with the chapel of Prophet Elias is illuminated and creates an exquisite site.

Every year, on 20th July, there is a brilliant event at the chapel, with the visits of thousands of believers.
