Not far from where my uncle and aunt live, there is a monastery dedicated to Our Lady from Macedon, Panagia Makedonitissa. The monastery has given its name to the suburb.
During the 1974 invasion, a Greek military aircraft did not identify itself in time, and was shot down by friendly fire here.
The site is now a military cemetery for the Greece Greek and Greek Cypriot dead from 1974. With graves for the recovered dead, and inscriptions for those subsequently identified through DNA.
