The smooth exterior stone structure hides the dome and apse of a 13th century Lysi chapel known as the Byzantine Fresco Chapel Museum. Designed by Francois de Menil, this breathtaking museum houses three restored Byzantine frescoes that have the distinction of being the only intact frescoes in existence in the western hemisphere. The Church of Cyprus has loaned them to the museum as a means of expressing their gratitude for The Menil Foundation's rescue and restoration of the stolen frescoes in 1997. The interior is dark, but intimate, and perfectly suits the viewing of these masterpieces.
