Situated in the picturesque village of Koilani, the Ecclesiastical Museum was established by the Limassol Bishopric with the purpose of preserving and displaying the ecclesiastical art of the parish. It also serves as a district branch of the renowned Byzantine Museum of Limassol.

Occupying the church of Monogenis, this museum proudly showcases an array of exhibits spanning approximately seven centuries. Among the noteworthy pieces are sections of an exquisite iconostasis dating back to 1735, a pulpit and altar from the 19th century, a collection of ancient icons (ranging from the 13th to the 19th centuries), sacred utensils, aged books (dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries), a beautifully embroidered 15th-16th century 'epitaphios' (a cloth icon used in special religious ceremonies), and an assortment of other valuable relics.

In close proximity to the church, visitors can explore the Viticulture Museum housed in a charming traditional village house. This adjacent museum offers captivating exhibits of viticultural equipment and folk art pieces, providing a delightful complement to the Ecclesiastical Museum's cultural offerings.
