The church of Panagia Chrysaliniotissa, possibly “Our Lady of the Golden Thistles”, 15th century—and as with everything else in this district, not terribly far from the barbed wire of the Green Zone
The Church of St Cassian. (Wikipedia: “This church is modern (1854) with many fragments of a more ancient building inserted in its walls.”) Cypriots pay this church a lot of attention because, like Our Lady of the Golden Thistle, it is right next to the Green Zone.
This also turns out to be the only Greek church dedicated to this particular Saint, who has had the misfortune of his feast day being on February 29th. As a result, there are several folk stories in circulation about how this particular Saint was somehow delinquent enough to have being punished, with his feastday being commemorated only once every 4 years.
The Cathedral of St Barnabas. Looking just as you would expect the cathedral of the Church of Cyprus should look.
