Stavrovouni Monastery, Larnaca, Cyprus

Stavrovouni Monastery is a Greek Orthodox monastery located on a hill in the district of Larnaca, Cyprus. It was founded in the 4th century by Saint Helena, the mother of Constantine the Great. The monasterie's main relic is a piece of the Holy Cross. Each year on the 14th of September there is a huge ceremony for the Day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
This great card was sent by my facebook friend Luca Damiani.
