Agia Napa Church, Lemesos (Limassol)

Located on Agiou Andreou Street, Agia Napa Church was built towards the end of the 19th century - early 20th century, on the ruins of an older, smaller Byzantine church.

According to tradition, the church takes its name from an icon of the Virgin Mary, which was found in a glen (‘napa’ in Latin), and thus is dedicated to her. Other sources believe that the church owes its name to a temple built in the Frankish period, dedicated to the Holy Nappe of St. Berenice, known by the name of ‘Saint Nape’.

The present church - which was completed in 1906 - is three-aisled, with a marble iconostasis and frescoes mainly on the dome, and contains a silver-covered icon of Agia Napa.
