In the Chrysochou valley, less than 1 mile (1.5 km) south of Choli (Paphos district), at 200m a.s.l., on a steep slope descending into a gorge, at the southeast corner of a ruined (monastic?) complex.

Description: The now ruinous domed cruciform structure was built in rough ashlar. Only parts of its west cross arm survive up to vault level, together with the north and south walls with pointed blind arches in good ashlar and the north springing of the vault. The north wall bears traces of fresco decoration, including busts of saints in medallions over a blue ground (Tephon with red and Bacchus with green ground) and the lower part of the Entry into Jerusalem on the vault springing over the plain cornice.

Dating: The style of the fresco decoration suggests a terminus ante quem in the late 12th century or slightly later.
