There are nine churches and one monastery in Troodos that are counted among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites and several other monasteries, of which the Kykkos monastery is the richest and most famous. The churches are:

* Stavros tou Ayiasmati
* Panayia tou Araka
* Timiou Stavrou at Pelendri
* Ayios Nikolaos tis Stegis
* Panayia Podithou
* Assinou
* Ayios loannis Lampadistis
* Archangel Michael at Pedhoulas

The area has been known since ancient times for its copper mines, and in the Byzantine period it became a great centre of Byzantine art, as churches and monasteries were built in the mountains, away from the threatened coastline.
