Kiti

The Church of the Panayía Angeloktistos, with beautiful early Byzantine mosaics lies in Kiti .

This beautiful 11th century Byzantine church was erected over the ruins of an early Christian basilica. The original apse survived together with one of the finest pieces of Byzantine art, a rare sixth century mosaic of the Virgin Mary and Child between the two archangels (Michael and Gabriel), which rivals the Ravenna Mosaics.

The Virgin is standing on a footstool with Christ in her left arm. It is an extremely delicate design and much more naturalistic in style than other contemporary paintings.

In the village is a bridge which was once part of a medieval castle destroyed by the Arabs. The village is becoming a tourist center and has several shops, banks and cafes.
