CHAPEL OF PANAGIA KOUSOULIOTISSA

The exact date of the construction of the chapel is unknown but some old books which were found, claim that the chapel was built 18th century. In older times it used to be a monastery. Its capacity is around 55 people. There are two versions concerning the name of Kousouliotissa which was given to Panagia. The first one says that the man who offered the money for the construction of the church was called Kousoulos and the second one says that Panagia could heal the infants (“kousoulouthkia” is the Cypriot dialect).

The chapel is placed on the east side of the village in a field which is full of tall pines. Its architecture is not very interesting. It is singled-aisled with arches and it has tiles on the roof. It is stone made (the stones were taken from the mountains) and its color is white. In 1963 the chapel was burnt and the ecclesiastic equipment (iconostasis, icons and pslaters) was replaced with a new one.

It celebrates mass 5-6 times a year. On Easter Tuesday there is a celebrating service and a procession of the icon.
