Platanistasa is located 15 kilometers from Agros, 30km off the Nicosia-Astromeritis road. Just outside the village there is a 15th century church which retains the most complete cycles of mural paintings of the second half of the 15th century in Cyprus.
The church of Stavros Tou Ayiasmati has a typical steep pitched roof. The walls of the nave are divided into two zones, the upper showing festivals and narrative paintings and the lower focusing on individual saints.
There are very good paintings, which have been restored under the auspices of UNESCO.
