Ayia Marina

ST MARINA church is situated north of the Proodos Timiou Stavrou church and also dates back to the 13th century. It belongs to the single – aisle timber- roofed type of church which is common in the Troodos range.

From this church comes a 13th century icon of Ayia Marina depicting scenes from her life, today exhibited at the Byzantine Museum of the Archbishop Makarios Foundation in Nicosia. The icons of Christ, the Madonna and Ayia Marina (18th c.), which can be seen at the Pedoulas Byzantine Museum, were also found in this church. The chapel celebrates on 17 July.
