Ayios Epifanios Church

Religious Sites

Famagusta

Overview

Another remote church of the Famagusta area, much like the secluded Ayia Thekla and the tucked away Ayioi Saranta church, Ayios Epifanios’ location offers great panoramic views of ‘Paliochori,’ a Byzantine settlement which was destroyed during the Arab invasion of 632 to 964 AD.

The church is devoted to the Byzantine Bishop of Salamis and lies on a slope of a cliff over the ruins of a former chapel. A larger and more modern church was constructed near the old chapel with the initiative of the Ayia Napa Municipality, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners and the Clergy.

Now it is a complex consisting of the St. Epiphanius church carved into the rock, the little old church with a glass floor, and the new jeweled temple which is often used for weddings and other celebrations.
