Trooditissa Monastery, located on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains, is one of the few monasteries in Cyprus for which the date of foundation is unclear. On the basis of local legend, it is thought that it was founded immediately after the iconoclastic period (8th-9th century A.D.). In general, monasteries in Cyprus were constructed after a hermit or hermits lived there, typically in caves, living a life of spiritual struggle. The monasteries were then constructed around these saints. The same holds true for the Troditissa Monastery. A deed from the 14th century has the earliest mention of the monastery. There are no relics from the Byzantine Middle Ages or the Frankish period.
