PANAGIA CHRYSIOTISSA

N° 1 b
Town / Village : Afendrika / Efendrika

District : Famagusta

 

DESCRIPTION :

Two aisled barrel-vaulted church on the ruins of an earlier church.

The church was built in the 6th century and destroyed by Arab raids in 8th century. It was rebuilt at the end of the 10th century. When it was rebuilt, instead of the original timber roof it was built with barrel-vault. In Medieval periode the church was destroyed again and rebuilt again in 16th century.

This church had pointed barrel vaulting and occupies only a part of the former site. A column surviving at the spot that it was erected in the first arch of the south wall of the later church helps to identify the arrangement of the columns in the previous building. Half-column fragments in the western part and in the apse also belong to the previous structure.
