The ruins of this church are beautiful, they remind of a bucolic old painting from the Romantic area. Come in the evening and enjoy the quiteness and calm of the ruins

Second visit here and still stand in amazement by the ruins and their history. Have a wander round and take some stunning photos against the clear blue sky - a must see for those interested in this kind of thing.

This ruin is worth a quick visit. I don't know much about its history other than it was damaged by the ottoman. I can imagen it would have been a beautiful church.

Probably the most spectacular of the ruined churches in Famagusta. Still impressive despite being neglected. Worth a stroll amongst the weeds to have a look. You can't help wondering just how impressive it must have looked in it's heyday.

Enough left to see but sad to see what must have been a magnificent building in this state. Some fresco remains in some sections.
