Could see the church just from the outside, since it was closed in a week day. It was very frustrating since the reviews recommended the visit.

Faneromeni church is a landmark in the old town of Nicosia, that cannot be missed due to its size. If you've never been into an orthodox church, it's well worth a visit and is open most of the day. As it's usually a meeting point...More

The moment you enter the church, you will feel that it has history and you are inspired to pray. A time to devote to yourself.

If you are into this kind of things, it is worth seeing. The architecture is great 👍 But I must say, after seeing a lot of churches on Cyprus, they tend to be a little similar.

If I would have to choose one church to visit in Nicosia, to get a sense of history and religion, this would be it! In the heart of the old town.

At the end of Onasagorou Street, you will fall upon the Faneromeni Church, beautiful orthodox church in excellent condition (exterior tower in renovation in April 2018). A lot of people were there to make their devotions and we enjoyed visiting it.

Built in 1872 within the old city walls, this used to be the largest church in Nicosia and most visited places. The marble mausoleum to the east of the church contains the relics of the bishops and priests executed by the Ottomans in 1821.

The fine iconostasis and chandeliers contrast well against the white columns and arches. Blue-white carpets and large ditto flags send a not-so-subtle political signal, comparable to the Turkish flags on former churches on "the other side".

First you must ask to find Onasagoras street in the old city. It easy to find because it starts from a square and it is one of the two main streets in the old city with shops, cafes and restaurants. You follow Onasagoras... More
