DOCUMENTS / BIBLIOGRAPHY

« The village is completely Turkish, and the church is now deserted . Close by is a fine fountain built like a small monotholos church, with a marble lintel and two stone rain spouts on its facade. There is an 18th century Turkish inscription, but this refers to a restoration, and the original fountain was in all probability Venetian. » (R.Gunnis, Historical Cyprus, 1936, 222.).
