Rural Churches of Cyprus

And a monastery. While city churches seem to be a bit uniform in design, out in the sticks, the churches are more unique. Maybe it's the century (yes, century) when the church was built, the village, the terrain, the people. Before highways, Internet and otherwise, you were building your house of worship for the folks within walking distance of the place, no thought to greater influences.

Rock and thatch.

Stucco. A frame.

Monastery complex.

Pee wee churches.

In the town of Peristerona, five domes, from the 10th century.
