The church of Panagia is situated in a central area of the Troodos mountain, in the valley of Marathasa at the Moutoulla village. In 1985 the church was listed UNESCO World Heritage Site, which includes nine other painted Byzantine churches of the Troodos range.

The narthex was added at a later stage, after the beginning of the 16th century, and it extends to the west and north sides the church. The timber roof also covers the narthex.
