Saint George’s Church - Lazanias village

The wood-carved church of Saint George is located in the historic village of Lazanias and was built in 1855.

An inscription inside the church gives testimony that on April 27, 1865, a priestmonk gilded the iconostasis at his own expense. Also of interest are the artfully carved ‘gynaeconitis’ (area reserved for women), and the three earthenware jars that are planted on the floor of the church, and were used for better acoustics during Mass. An unusual vegetal decoration trails over the roof and decorates it.

The village itself takes its name from the word ‘Lusignan’ thanks to a farm of the Lusignan Crusaders that formed the basis of the village.
