Agios Epifanios

In the northeast of the village stands a small arched church dedicated to Agios Epifanios.

The church was partially dilapidated but some significant hagiographies dated back to the 15th and 16th century were still salvaged. In 1969, the ruined parts of the northern and western wall, as well as the ogive arch of the church, were reconstructed.

Salvaged on one part of the dome is the Standing Lady of the Signs (Platytera), praying with Her arms raised in between the archangels.

The archangel located on the right of Virgin Mary is salvaged in good condition, while three out of six hierarchs are salvaged on the semicircular wall of the arch.

Some other hagiographies which are in good shape depict Martyr Stephanos, the archangel, Apostle Pavlos, Agia Paraskevi and the Horseback Saint George. The rest of the hagiographies are quite ruined.

The church of Agios Epifanios is a type B’ archaeological monument and is administered by the department of antiquities. 

The Community Council, in cooperation with the Department of Antiquities and the Cyprus Tourism Organisation, are making great efforts to upgrade the area surrounding the church so that this will become a picnic area.
